Members of the Australian Property Developers Association (APDA Inc.) were once again treated to some very exclusive and insightful presentations by the most reputable names in the Australian quantity surveying and construction risk management sector recently.

During the evening, Mr Julian Chai, the Associate-Director of NAB’s Construction Risk Management Department, was accompanied by another well-known professional, Mr Craig Smith, Director of national quantity surveying firm, Napier & Blakeley, who expertly shared on the effects the recent cladding crisis had had on the Australian construction and insurance sectors. Craig also shared upon the regulatory processes that were put in place in Victoria to prevent post-construction structural defects that had been dominating the front page of national news of late.

As a testament of its value and contribution toward the development community, APDA Inc. is supported and sponsored by some of the most well-known brand names inside and outside the property and development sector, such as CBRE, Urbis, Pitcher Partners, Best Hooper Lawyers, Payton, DLX Creative and your very own contemporary luxury publisher, EZ Australia.
