“The liquidator’s most urgent task is to help employees get paid, and at first instance that will be by facilitating claims in the government’s Fair Entitlements Guarantee Scheme (‘FEG’) and the Building Industry Redundancy Scheme (‘BIRST’),” Phillips said.
Four building companies in South Australia, including Wake Concepts, have entered administration so far this year.
The latest of those was Qattro, which has 200 residential homes left unfinished.
