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.

Weir says developers and builders have no real interest in whether what they construct will perform over the long term, and they are not being held accountable for any actions that might negatively impact future owners.
