Project Remediate is a three-year program to help remove combustible cladding on high risk (Class 2) buildings known to the NSW Cladding Taskforce.
Project Remediate will provide assurance and program management services to support eligible owners’ corporations and strata managing agents through the remediation of combustible cladding. Eligible building owners will also be supported through a 10-year interest-free loan.
The ePlanning Program is collaborating with the Office of the Building Commissioner and Project Remediate team to develop a workflow solution for this project within the NSW Planning Portal. This will ensure compliance with the Design and Building Practitioners Act 2020 for remediation work to be carried out under Project Remediate.
Regulated designs will be lodged by design and building practitioners as appointed by Hansen Yuncken (Managing Contractor appointed by the NSW Government for Project Remediate).
The workflow solution will be split into four stages:
Once the applicant on each project has confirmed their design solutions (as offered by the Managing Contractor appointed under Project Remediate), the applicant will request the practitioner to log onto the NSW Planning Portal and initiate a Project Remediate case. This will allow the applicant to provide project details, nominate building and design practitioners and provide a building
The nominated practitioner(s) will be required to comply with the Design and Building Practitioners Act 2020 requirements to upload, declare and lodge Construction-Issued Regulated Designs (CIRD), and any variations as needed.

Once remediation has been completed and all CIRDs and variations have been lodged, the case will move to OPR to review the completed work and upload a Remediation Assurance Certificate (RAC).
If the case was initiated because of a Development Control order, the case will move to a consent authority for review and closure after the issuance of RAC.
