In this session, Bronwyn Weir, Director of Weir Legal and Consulting will highlight the key themes of the Building Confidence Report (BCR) for architects. This includes the role of the designer in the building approval process, lifting professionalism by shifting industry associations as well as improving regulatory effectiveness.
She will also provide an update on the progress of implementation of the BCR including the work of the ABCB and its priorities, activities of each state and territory towards reforms, and finally, aspirations and challenges.
Bronwyn is the co-author of the Building Confidence Report. Her appointment with Professor Shergold to undertake this work reflects her reputation as a legal advisor on building regulations for more than 20 years. Bronwyn has been advising the NSW and WA governments on their implementation of the Building Confidence Report and she is also part of the Expert Advisory Group appointed to advise the ABCB on its work to develop a national framework for the implementation of the report.
Bronwyn is an inaugural Board member of the recently established International Building Quality Centre at University of Canberra. Other related work includes advising on the Vic Government’s response to combustible cladding and on security of payment reforms for the Queensland government.
