Grenfell Tower fire is the kind of tragedy that changes the built environment forever, through new building rules and safety measures.
Estimated costs for Victoria alone range from hundreds of millions to as much as $1.6 billion If work to rectify buildings fitted with combustible cladding isn't well handled.
Residents were blogging about the tower block's safety issues well before the fire, but there were few reporters around to pick up on the story.
Previous laws gave tenants very little protection – but now landlords could face court if they don't keep their properties in good repair.
Police have to analyse over 31m documents, 2,500 pieces of evidence and 2,332 witness statements. This makes Grenfell the biggest and most complex corporate manslaughter case ever brought.
Architects, certifiers and engineers who work as consultants to builders are on notice about potential liability for the use of flammable cladding, but governments are also culpable for their actions.
The risks of combustible cladding on high-rise buildings have long been known. And audits have identified hundreds of Australian buildings with this cladding. Delay in replacing it is inexcusable.
As more and more Australians live and work in high-rise buildings, their responsibilities and roles in ensuring all occupants' safety must not be neglected.
Fortunately, no lives were lost in the latest cladding fire in Melbourne, but it's a stark reminder of the urgent need to track and verify that building materials comply with safety standards.
When people don't trust the government, the media or police, they are less inclined to play by the rules and more likely to lash out violently.
A year on what do we know about how the Grenfell fire spread? And what changes need to happen to make sure there is never a repeat?
A new analysis of 44,000 tweets reveals that fake news isn't always persuasive.
Grenfell was a 'catastrophic regulatory failure', and reform is still needed – but above all, tenants must be empowered to make their homes safe.
She lurches from crisis to crisis but the prime minister remains in post. How does she do it?
It's not the first time a form of urban music from the black community has been purposefully associated with crime by the powers that be.
Ventilation and natural light are two simple measures which can make buildings better for people to live and work in.
Residents may be right to fear for their lives.
Government learned much from the war. But today we find new throwbacks to that Blitz-era sclerosis.
Concerns over examining the Grenfell Tower disaster have been seen before.
This is about more than justice for the 96.
