Bushfire Risk Assessment (BAL)
Development within a bushfire prone area needs to be designed and built to meet additional Australian Standards. The team at Blencowe Design can conduct a bushfire attack level BAL assessment of your property and advise of any additional requirements needed to meet the standards.
There are 6 Bushfire Attack Levels including:
BAL – LOW
Lowest risk from a potential fire
BAL – 12.5
Risk is primarily from potential embers during a fire.
BAL – 19
Moderate risk, particularly from embers and burning debris.
BAL – 29
High risk, particularly from embers, debris and heat
BAL – 40
Very high risk. Likely to be impacted by embers, debris, heat and potentially flames
BAL – FZ Extreme risk.
Directly exposed to the flames of a potential fire front.
The team also work closely with a select few specialised bush fire consultants when a more detailed report is needed for higher risk developments.
