Podcast: Chandler says he’s going nowhere

This week on the Flat Chat Wrap we get a glimpse behind the scenes as NSW Building Commissioner David Chandler is a guest at a “town hall” meeting for members of his team.

In it David outlines some of the Building Commission’s achievements over the past five years, including the creation of a “defects library” so that certifiers, owners corporations and eventually universities can access the same information about defects, employing the same definitions, so that everyone is on the same page when it comes to claims and remediation.

He also outlines his plans for post-retirement – he’s not leaving, just winding back a little – celebrates the fact that a building commission team from another state has been looking closely at how the NSW BC works, and relates how inspectors from flammable cladding Project Remediate discovered serious defects in a newish building and got them fixed by the developer without needing to go to court and at no cost to the owners.

Just to clarify, David is introduced by Elizabeth Stewart, associate director of Building Compliance, and the other voices you will hear are Assistant Commissioners Tom Carney and Matthew Press. And the Yolande to whom he refers is Yolande Nyss who built  and leads the Project Intervene section which helps strata schemes navigate defect rectification with their developers. 

All that and more in this week’s Flat Chat Wrap.
