Project Remediate: First cladding removed from Darlington apartment block 

The NSW Government’s billion dollar cladding remediation program, Project Remediate, has reached a significant milestone with the first cladding removed for investigation from a Darlington apartment block.

Minister for Better Regulation, Kevin Anderson said the start of the investigation work is a huge step for Project Remediate, which is on track to remove all flammable cladding from NSW’s eligible high-risk residential apartment buildings by the end of 2023.

“This is an incredibly important moment for the families and residents living in apartments impacted by dangerous cladding,” Mr Anderson said.

“Today is the start of a critical program that has been years in the making. So much careful work has been done behind the scenes to reach this point, and we are now ready to fix a problem that has been burdening owners for a long time.”

Project Remediate will provide no-interest loans, free expert program management, and the assurance that when remediation work is completed, the work will be accepted by insurers. The program will also create 3,440 new jobs in NSW.

“The NSW Government launched Project Remediate in March and since then has put in the work to recruit the right team, including appointing top experts in the field to oversee the work, and to date we have more than 155 buildings registered for remediation,” Mr Anderson said.
