Strata - Remedial Work Cost Doubled!
So, currently have a Strata remediation works project at my apartment, 2-3 level building about 20ish units.
Project is for balcony and concrete cancer etc.
So we got a consultant to write up the scope and all seemed well, i'd bought the place knowing it would eventually be needed and budgeted about 30k-40k for it when buying (negotiated the price off the back of this.)
Turns out to be mid 60s.. hmm ok.. not great but seemed comprehensive enough that it shouldn't blow out…
we've now discovered more and more works etc so now we're being told we need to find anouther 60-70 per unit..
What type of review should/can we get involved with this.. like 2nd opinion etc.
half the work's done, kinda, and the other half is just more and more problematic and more costs expected.
