RMIT academics Drs Simon Lockrey, Trivess Moore and David Oswald are researching the impact to households living in apartments with flammable cladding.
If you are an owner of property with combustible cladding; and/or you have insights about what owners of property affected by combustible cladding face day to day across Australia they want to hear from you!
The researchers want to hear about the scale of the problems you face day to day. This research involves a 30-60 minute audio-recorded in-person or telephone interview where they will ask you a range of open-ended questions.
Your answers will form the basis of range of peer reviewed reports, journal articles, conference paper/s and/ or press releases. The interviews of key stakeholders will help inform the study, with the following types of questions asked:
• Are you an owner of property affected by combustible cladding? How big is it/ how many dwellings in your building?
• What have the social effects of being an owner of property affected by combustible cladding?
• Has being an owner of property affected by combustible cladding affected your residential status? (i.e. spatial effects)
• Has being an owner of property affected by combustible cladding affected your behaviour?
• What have been the financial implications of being an owner of property affected by combustible cladding?
If you are interested, please email Dr David Oswald at firstname.lastname@example.org or Dr Trivess Moore at email@example.com so they can provide you with an information sheet which describes the project in straightforward language. Make sure that you understand its contents, what's involved, and your rights before deciding whether to participate.
