Opal 'tip of the iceberg' of Australia's high-rise building problems: Weir

Sydney's Opal Tower was the "tip of the iceberg" and more building failures would occur if state governments didn't follow through with a set of planned reforms, construction lawyer Bronwyn Weir said. "Opal is the manifestation of a system in trouble," said Ms Weir, who with academic Peter Shergold last year authored a key industry report with recommendations that all states and territories have agreed to implement. Without serious reform it was "quite inevitable" that more such failures would occur, Ms Weir told The Australian Financial Review after publication of the Opal Tower report on Friday.
