Western Australia’s Building Services Board has fined a former registered builder $2,000 for two counts of misleading conduct and twice failing to comply with an order of the Building Commissioner.
Former Guilderton registered builder Kimberley John Houlahan (BP and BC10019) was fined in relation to four breaches of the Building Services (Registration) Act 2011 for building work he had performed at a number of residential properties, namely:
“Mr Houlahan’s behaviour shows a pattern of non-compliance with WA’s building legislation, which is not acceptable,” Building and Energy Acting Executive Director Saj Abdoolakhan said.
“The fine would have been higher but Mr Houlahan is no longer operating as a registered builder.”
