Yangebup building company Bellagio Homes Pty Ltd (reg. BC11833) has been formally cautioned by the Building Services Board for failing to comply with an order of the State Administrative Tribunal (SAT).
In May 2014, the SAT ordered Bellagio Homes to remedy its construction of a boundary wall at a Bicton property, obtain certification from a structural engineer and pay costs of $1,500 to the home owner by 17 June 2014.
Bellagio Homes failed to comply with the order in that it did not complete the rectification work or provide the required structural engineering certification by the due date. However, the company did rectify the work and provide the required certification shortly after the due date.
“For Bellagio Homes to fail to meet its obligations in this matter is unacceptable and not what we expect of a registered builder,” said Building Commissioner Peter Gow.
“This case highlights the importance of our registration system. A person may make a building service complaint about any work done by a registered builder, and the Building Commissioner or the SAT can make an order to remedy or to pay money.
“Registered builders who fail to maintain proper standards or who act inappropriately can be disciplined or deregistered.
“The Building Commission will continue to hold to account and name those who put consumer interests and the reputation of the building industry at risk.”
