A “game changing” new system allowing prospective home buyers access to ratings of up to 100 NSW property developers has been introduced in NSW. All buildings will have a defect of some form. What you get from ratings of players is the high likelihood that the developer or builder will go back to fix it.
The NSW Building Commissioner David Chandler backed the ratings system as a means of putting more power in the hands of the buyer. The five-star rankings will sort property developers on key points such as credit ratings to judge developers’ character, capability, capital and defect history.

Construction relies on networks of contractors and sub-contractors (or "subbies").Subbies can be exposed to an unfair balance of power in the commercial relationships due to a lack of transparency.Moreover, inefficient processes and disjointed communications mean they are exposed risk of labour blowouts, quality issues, and unpaid invoices.Neo Intelligence has created an operations management platform for sub-contractors to mitigate risk with real-time data.It’s an easy-to-use SaaS tool
for fieldworkers to store and access data in the cloud, manage program issues,
internal resources and on-site conflicts, with built-in compliance and processes
for risk mitigation and cost reduction.https://neointelligence.com.au/
