David Chandler’s resignation as Building Commissioner – a massive loss for NSW

Urban Taskforce Australia CEO, Tom Forrest, today said the resignation of David Chandler from his role as the NSW Building Commissioner is a massive loss for the construction industry in this State.

 

“David Chandler is a formidable figure who has vast experience in the construction sector.  He has single mindedly devoted himself to the goal of eliminating poor developers, builders and PCAs from the apartment building marketplace in this state.  Further, he has overseen the establishment of two new Acts of law which, for the first time, requires all key consultants to insured and all involved in the construction to be held accountable for the building they construct, as well as establishing the Office of the Building Commissioner and the powers to undertake Occupations Certificate Audits”, Mr Forrest said.
