Building and Asset Services disaster management

If you need to request urgent maintenance of a government building, e.g. a school or police station), call:

  • 1800 631 328

Building and Asset Services is responsible for the coordination and delivery of the department’s disaster management response at a district level.

If you are a social housing tenant and need urgent maintenance because of a disaster or weather event please see the table below for your nearest maintenance response centre.

Our regional offices maintain a close working relationship with all stakeholders as part of day to day business and are able to contact and activate disaster response capabilities quickly.

During the establishment of standing offer arrangements and similar contractual agreements, we incorporate a disaster response capability.

Our extensive statewide network ensures we are ready to respond to any disaster event.

By working in partnership with other state government functional support agencies, the Department of Housing and Public Works, through Building and Asset Services, is well positioned to help get communities back on their feet after a disaster event.
