We're establishing a team of public sector building certifiers.
Government certifiers will provide the opportunity for consumers to make better judgements about who they’re trusting to approve building work - as well as encouraging developers to do the right thing and not cut corners.
There have been too many cases where property developers have forced other parts of the industry to cut on costs and influence process, only to eventually wind up projects and leave owners with the bill for their dodgy work.
The public sector certifiers will sit alongside the Government’s licencing scheme for property developers and break the link between developers and building certifiers.
It's about restoring confidence in the ACT's construction sector.
