After the ludicrous situations with the Mascot and Opal residential towers the State Government is only now considering a crackdown on dodgy construction work.
They are proposing registering building designers, engineer and architects on the basis that they could be de-registered if they transgress.
They still seem unwilling to recognise the deficiencies in the private certifier process where the developer pays the certifier to sign-off on the building. They claim that they have already addressed the issue of shonky certifiers. It is obvious the certification process has to be returned to the only qualified independent staff and process – Council inspectors.
