The construction industry requires diligence and professionalism in the way it carries out business. In
recent years there has been a growing concern that the use of materials in construction need to be
better understood by the building industry. In addition, the performance of construction materials
needs to be compliant and conform with Australian Standards and Building Regulations. 
There are several causes, the wrong material has been used, the right material has not been installed
correctly or a blend of both. The result is that the consumer, suppliers, and trades have been impacted. 
For the case study review the media or other literature to identify a product/component/system used
in residential buildings that had developed problems/defects from either not being compliant or not
conforming to building codes, regulations, or standards. This is to be based on a residential home or
low/medium height residential buildings. High rise buildings are out of the scope of the case study
and will not be graded. Discuss the impact to the building and consumer. In your report consider
possible solutions to remediate the problem/defects.
The case study should have followings sections:
– Introduction
– Description
– Research to identify the technical information
– Discussion
– Conclusions
