Construction expert David Chandler says he was not surprised about the structural problems that have afflicted Sydney’s Opal Tower. Chandler, who is a former CEO of Fletcher Construction Group and who chaired the inquiry into the flawed $16.2 billion school halls national building project, says little seems to have been done about the problems with building quality that he pointed out almost 10 years ago. He says much of the problem is due to state building regulators lacking the will and the budget resources to properly enforce building standards, along with building ministers being too easily swayed by lobbying from the construction industry.
