Construction lawyer Bronwyn Weir says more building failures similar to the cracks that impacted Sydney’s Opal Tower are inevitable if serious reforms are not implemented by the states. Cracks in the apartment tower led to its residents being evacuated on Christmas Eve, with some still unable to return to their homes.
