Australia’s construction crisis. Not money but that they are all falling down

Recommended Posts

This has been mentioned in Daily Mail over the last cook weeks and I don’t think we have discussed it. Lots of shoddy work in new builds and they are in danger of collapse or spontaneously combusting. 

I wonder whether the same will be revealed on UK buildings?

Hundreds of Australian apartment buildings are plagued with significant and deadly defects, according to alarming new figures.

A report by Griffith University's Dr Sacha Reid and Deakin University's Dr Nicole Johnston, uncovered 3227 defects in 212 buildings throughout Australia. 

One of the most concerning aspects to come out of the report was the 'alarming' number of fire safety related defects in the wake of the devastating Grenfell Tower blaze in London, which claimed 72 lives in 2017.

Many buildings are at risk of becoming towering infernos with fire-protection defects identified as the most common.

Defects were found in 71 per cent of inspected apartments in Queensland with each building recording an average of 12 defects.

One in three apartment buildings in Queensland had serious water penetration.

Many faults were due to shoddy workmanship and poor design.

The main difference is that Grenfell Towers was a safe building retrofitted by modern know all idiots to be a death trap while the Aussie buildings have been designed to burn down or fall down from the start.

This is a direct effect of HPI and property ramping: people are buying these new builds uninspected by surveyors, sight unseen, or even off plan.

Shoddy work goes unpunished and quality work unrewarded in those circumstances.

So everyone races to the bottom with shoddy.

It is also the case here.
