"Fearful" strata owners call for national action on cladding, codes

July 18, 2019. Strata Community Association NSW president Chris Duggan speaking to media outside Mascot Towers in Sydney about the need for national reform of the building standards, ahead of meeting of state ministers. Duggan says strata owners are facing multi-million dollar repair bills as those responsible shirk costs. "They're fearful of the consequence, they're scared of value implication ... they don't have anyone to turn to," he says. He also says the current situation is frustrating but he is hopeful a resolution will be reached today. It comes as Australia's building ministers meet in Sydney on Thursday to address the nation's construction crisis, with dangerous cladding and insurance premiums two topics on the agenda.
