BACKGROUND OF THE PROGRAM

Building defects are physical problems found in the infrastructure or outer finish of a building. Building defects arise through inappropriate or poor design, specification and construction as well as to insufficient attention given to building maintenance. Such faults may have been present since the beginning, or more commonly may find their trigger later down the track due to a fault in the original construction or design of the building.



With that in mind, the question of the day is, how does Malaysia ensure that its buildings are safe to live /work in? Property defects and building safety have been major concerns for many years in Malaysia. However, it has been brought to greater attention after the tragedies that have occurred and endangered, as well as even taken the lives many unsuspecting individuals.
Comfori’s second Building Defects & Safety Conference 2018 will deliver a solution-driven agenda that is a one-stop centre for building safety and design professionals to learn about the latest protocols needed to keep buildings safe and meet and maintain compliance with accepted codes and standards in Malaysia. The Building Defects & Safety Conference 2019 brings professionals from the built environment including architects, engineers, along with plumbing, mechanical, fuel gas, building and fire safety professionals to make it easier to exchange critical information on the latest technologies for building a safer, and more resilient world.
