Homeowners in troubled Opal Towers could miss another Christmas in the building because of preventable remediation delays, the new NSW building commissioner has said.
Taking aim at the Sydney Olympic Authority, David Chandler accused the original landowners of not intervening with developers in the interests of owners. He also rebuked the builders, developers and the government for delays in getting tenants back in the building.
In a strongly-worded letter to SOPA last week, Mr Chandler chastised SOPA for failing to step in over a commercial conflict and unpaid compensation at a ground floor retail shop owned by developer Ecove. The stalemate has led to a halt in remediation works.
