Tonight | Four Corners on ABC TV and ABC iview

Four Corners on ABC – This week on Four Corners reporter Stephen Long investigates what is wrong with Australia’s building industry?

Australia has experienced the highest rate of construction insolvencies in a decade, and over the past year, nearly 30% of all company failures are in construction.

Stephen and the team follow the supply chain pressures that are driving some builders to the brink, and expose companies who are racking up debt, liquidating and reincarnating leaving countless victims in their wake.

The team asks why the industry’s profit margins are so slim, such that any major disruption can be fatal.

Alongside building companies undone by tough times, there are also those that flout the law.

This report profiles one such Sydney company — its rise and fall show the limits of the system for dealing with insolvent companies and highlight failures of corporate regulation.

In such turbulent economic times, this is a must watch.

House of Cards reported by Stephen Long goes to air on Monday 17th July at 8.30pm on ABC TV and and ABC iview.
