Response to BWRO issues by Building Commission NSW

Sydney, 17 January 2024 – Greenland Australia (Greenland) is aware of several news stories regarding its development ‘NBH’, located at North Ryde (the project). The project
which completed construction in February 2020, was built by GN Residential Construction Pty Ltd.

Greenland can confirm it received a Draft Work Rectification Order (Draft BWRO) from the Building Commission NSW (the Commission), at the end of October 2023, to which it promptly responded. Greenland has been fully cooperating with the Commission following the issue of the Draft BWRO.

Greenland engaged multiple, suitably qualified engineering consultants to undertake investigations in accordance with the requests of the Commission, within the Draft BWRO. Their initial investigations have identified the BWRO issues are localised in the lower car park levels only and that there is no risk of collapse of the building’s towers. There is no serious structural defects at the project, as some media outlets have claimed.

Since then, Greenland has undertaken additional investigations. Recommendations were made by the external engineering consultants to undertake localised repairs, to ensure the long-term durability and structural integrity of building’s concrete slabs and joints as identified in the Draft BWRO.

Greenland has been following all directions made by the Commission and its specialist consultants and remains fully committed to working closely with the Commission to satisfactorily resolve the situation.

Greenland can confirm that no other buildings that it has developed, are impacted by this issue.

Greenland, via the project’s building manager and strata managers, has contacted all residential owners and tenants at the project today. It can confirm that no evacuations at the project are required.
