Camberwell plumber fined for shoddy St Kilda gasfitting
Monday, 27 October 2014
A Camberwell-based plumber issued compliance certificates for two sites in St Kilda, despite knowing the work did not comply with plumbing regulations.
The Victorian Building Authority (VBA) found licensed plumber Gary Jackson acted unprofessionally and negligently after it investigated and tested the works and found that there were significant gas escapes at both properties. The VBA concluded that the gasfitting works were defective and caused gas to leak at the properties.
