Unauthorised work lands building company in strife.

The State Administrative Tribunal has ordered fines and costs totalling $51,750.00 against a builder in relation to unauthorised building work on a Perth apartment building.

 

The building company was negligent by reconfiguring the top three floors of the Hay Street building to yield an additional nine apartments between August 2008 and October 2010 without the required approvals.

 

The builder, who admitted to the allegations made, was fined $25,000.00 plus $1,750.00 in costs for the negligence.  Two directors of the company were ordered to pay $7,500.00 each, and a third director, who was also the builder’s managing director and supervisor, was ordered to pay $10,000.00.
