For over 30 years, the Cyclone Testing Station has been at the forefront of damage investigations after cyclones and other severe wind events. The aim of these investigations has been to understand what building products and systems performed well, as well as identifying areas for improvement in building regulations and standards.

The Station has conducted these damage investigations in Queensland, Northern Territory, Western Australia and New South Wales, as well as Tonga, Vietnam, and USA. Findings from these investigations help to improve building materials and standards to minimise further loss and suffering.
