‘Don’t buy it’: Ross and John get advice for apartment-buyers

Phil Dwyer, Builders Collective of Australia president, has told 3AW Breakfast anyone buying a Melbourne apartment needs to ask one question.

“Is there any combustible cladding on the building?” he told Ross and John, in the wake of the horrific tower fire in London.

And if there is?

“Don’t buy it, don’t take the risk.”

“It’s just not worth it.

“This product is so flammable, it’s like a firecracker.”

Earlier, Ross and John learnt more about the cladding, which caused a fire in Docklands in 2014, from Chris Stoltz, Engineers Australia’s Victorian president.

In the wake of that incident, it was found that 51 per cent of apartment buildings had the cladding.
