The objective of this project was to form recommendations on whether or not to explicitly include property protection into the Building Code of Australia (BCA). Numerous discussions were held with key professionals in Australia's fire industry, along with examination of statistics and relevant case studies to provide the recommendations. The project team came to the conclusion that there is currently not enough data to support an objective change to the BCA, and more research must be conducted.
