The first NSW Building Commissioner, David Chandler, has indicated that he will not seek renewal of his tenure when it expires in August.

Under his leadership, there has been significant reform to the residential building industry in New South Wales, with builders and developers being forced to address issues early, during audit processes and insurers re-entering the market.

Although a replacement is yet to be announced, builders and developers should not rest easy, after all, it is the office and not the incumbent that has the powers and the mandate for action and reform.
