‘Developers cutting corners for profit would be a crime elsewhere’ says legal specialist

Michael McLaren

Michael is joined by Ian Bailey AM, Professorial Fellow Melbourne University Law School & Senior Council specialising in construction disputes about his opinion piece ‘Developers cutting corners for profit would be a crime elsewhere.”

He writes “The fundamental issue is the extensive construction of multi-storey apartment buildings by some developers who, for the sake of profit, have included seriously inadequate fire safety and water-proofing, among other deficiencies.”

“The offending developers have been aided in their misconduct by the delusional process of private certification and, more importantly, by the abandonment by state governments of the responsibility to impose upon strata unit developers an obligation to comply with building regulations.”
