The New South Wales Government has released an independent experts’ report on the cause of cracked concrete panels on the Opal Tower in Sydney. The interim report found a number of design and construction problems with the residential tower, although it concluded that the building is structurally sound. The reports’ authors noted that while the cracks were primarily the result of design and construction issues, the problem was exacerbated as residents began moving into the building.
