I have started our Linked In Group and called it The Property Development Doctor which refers to the malaise of the Property Development Industry in the Multi-Apartment High Rise Sector.
The group was started in the wake of tragedies across the Globe in multi-apartment fires. The founder of the group is property development historian Dr Jonathan Drane. It is designed to help consumers and industry understand the reasons behind these defects and going beyond a technical explanation and into understanding the decay of property development processes and professional practices over many decades and evolutions. The focus is on defects in the Australian Commercial Property Development Industry in the High Rise Multi-Apartment Sector which is an area that is not protected well by legislative processes and licensing.
It follows on from my research into the State of Contemporary Property Development Structures.
It is designed as a business led action group against life threatening development practices and related defects in the Australian Commercial Construction industry. The quality of buildings in the multi-apartment sector is at the mercy of third level developer-builders who either do not understand quality processes or are not interested.
