20 Aug TA: 23 Do You Understand OC Managers and Combustable Cladding?
With apartment buildings now exceeding 1000 units and containing multiple uses such as retail, office and food plus many resident services, the role of the Owners Corporation Manager (OCM) (formerly Body Corporate Management) has had to step up dramatically recently.
Add to this issues such as combustible cladding, greater community integration, high service standard expectations and long term maintenance plans and OCM is a critical component to ensuring the successful longevity of any building management.
I sat down with Sam Atkins, Managing Director of Bluestone OCM who is one of Australia’s leading OC Managers to discuss all things OCM. We chat about everything from the hot issue of combustible cladding to what sort of apartment he would buy.
