Risk and Governance Adviser

The establishment of Cladding Safety Victoria (CSV) by the Victorian Government is a world-leading initiative. The $600 million program aims to make Victorians safer by reducing the risk associated with combustible cladding on residential apartment buildings and publicly owned buildings. We work with owners and owners’ corporations to help them rectify non-compliant or non-conforming external wall cladding products on buildings. We do this by providing support, guidance and connections to appropriately registered and qualified practitioners. Initially set up as a business unit of the Victorian Building Authority (VBA), CSV recruited staff and built the policies and procedures needed to deliver the program from the ground up. In late 2020, CSV was established as its own statutory entity with its own Act of Parliament.
