  3. 172. Exposing Australia’s Building Defects Crisis, with Dr Nicole Johnston

This week, I’m speaking with Dr Nicole Johnston, the lead researcher on the June 2019 report: An Examination of Building Defects in Multi-Owned Properties. Published the week of the Mascot Towers evacuation, this report has formed the basis of many discussions since about how we might fix this current crisis – which has finally been recognised as such. We cover:
 
  • what the most common building defects are and how they are impacting the daily lives of residents
  • how we are getting it wrong when it comes to rectification of defects
  • how developers are stifling the ability of owners corporations to exercise the legal rights available to them at the beginning of a building’s life
  • the confusing role that strata managers play in facilitating early communications with developers about defects
and more.
