Dodgy building certifiers are at the source of the NSW Government’s latest construction crackdown, who announced it would target corrupt building certifiers after the Sydney Opal Tower incident. Recently the Opal Tower was evacuated after a crack was discovered in a precast concrete panel inside the building. Fears that the building was unsafe caused an evacuation.
The government has been under increasing pressure to ensure the safety of buildings in Sydney, particularly in light of the number of buildings that have sprung up in recent years.
Certifiers that are corrupt will be thrown out of the industry if they are discovered. Minister for Better Regulation Matt Kean said the government was looking into buildings that were recently constructed or those currently being built. He promised the government would throw the book at any offenders caught.
