Bushfire resilient building guidance for Queensland homes

Source(s):  Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO)
Queensland Government

The guideline identifies a suite of best practice building and landscaping measures, using tailored, site-specific solutions to adapt buildings for bushfire resilience. The guideline is based on extensive research into the attack mechanisms of bushfires and the different ways that buildings and gardens may be vulnerable to these attacks.

To help combat the impacts of bushfires in Queensland, the Queensland Government has partnered with the CSIRO to develop guidelines that can help improve the bushfire resilience of new and existing homes. Bushfire Resilient Building Guidance for Queensland Homes provide information on best-practice building and landscaping measures that use tailored, site-specific solutions to adapt buildings for bushfire resilience.

This document provides guidance to stakeholders that can be used to design and build new homes or retrofit existing buildings. It can also be used to design or upgrade the landscape immediately surrounding the home, for better bushfire outcomes. It provides guidance on bushfire resilient design principles, constructions details, types of material, landscaping, and highlights the importance of maintenance and preparation.
