Local building contractor Archiapps has entered into voluntary administration, less than two weeks after the Building Commission issued a warning to consumers about the company.

Cameron Shaw and Richard Albarran of Hall Chadwick WA have been appointed as the administrators of the company.

Earlier this month, Building Commissioner Ken Bowron raised concerns over the financial status of ArchiApps Pty Ltd and ArchiApps Development Pty Ltd.

Mr Bowron said the number of court actions against the company had been steadily increasing over the last two months.

Today, he said the company’s status would now trigger policies of home indemnity insurance.

“With the company now in administration, I encourage home owners to contact their insurer for advice on making a claim with a view to progressing their projects,” Mr Bowron said.

“We are continuing to liaise with Archiapps Development Pty Ltd regarding its financial position.”

The Subiaco-based boutique builder operates within the Perth metro area, specialising in luxury houses and apartments, and also offers complementary feasibility reports on projects.

According to the ArchiApps website, the business's current pipeline of projects under construction includes: a 50-unit apartment development on Railway Parade in Beckenham; Code 23, a 33-dwelling development across four three-storey buildings also on Clapham Street in Beckenham; and Emerald Terrace, a 21-apartment tower in West Perth.

Past developments include shop fitout works for restaurant Chimek in East Victoria Park and a range of medium-density projects across Belmont, Mount Lawley, Cloverdale and Kewdale.

ArchiApps director Scottie Feng has also been flagged by First International Debt Collection, which specialises in residential and commercial tenancy debt recovery, as well as general debt recovery.

Anyone owed money by the builder, including subcontractors and suppliers, should contact Hall Chadwick and register as a creditor.
