Opal Tower Will Shake Up the NSW Construction Industry – References

#OpalTower #Icon #Failure
We look at an article about proposed changes to the NSW Construction Industry recommended by the Shergold Weir Report and the Opal Tower Failure, which includes the registration of builders and engineers.

I also look at the process of searching for a builder’s license and Engineer’s registration in Queensland as an example of how the public could access the information.

The Opal Tower Design Excellence Presentation – References

#OpalTower #Icon #Failure

Watching some clips from the Opal Tower Design Excellence Competition presentation by Architect BatesSmart and hosted by the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitats. Given that this presentation was filled on the 19th of September, before any issues with the building, it is surprising that it was released a few days ago, given the issues and terrible publicity about the building.
