The supervisor of Dianella-based building company Frayson has been fined $15,000 for failing in his duties as a manager and supervisor on work carried out at 20 Perth properties over a 10-year period.

The supervisor of Dianella-based building company Frayson has been fined $15,000 for failing in his duties as a manager and supervisor on work carried out at 20 Perth properties over a 10-year period.

Francesco Di Labio was fined $15,000 and ordered to pay $1,000 in costs by the State Administrative Tribunal in a settlement finalised last month after SAT found him guilty of several disciplinary breaches.

SAT found Mr Di Labio didn’t properly manage and supervise building services he was responsible for between December 2005 and February 2015, and that he also engaged in misleading conduct by representing to the Building Services Board that he was acting in the capacity of a nominated supervisor when he was not.

“In failing to manage and supervise the building services carried out by Frayson and engaging in misleading and negligent conduct, Mr Di Labio has not met his obligations as a registered builder,” building commissioner Peter Gow said.

“Mr Di Labio’s conduct left him open to action by the Building Services Board and, having withdrawn his application for renewal as a building service practitioner in July 2016, he no longer holds a builder’s registration.

“The Building Commission will continue to name and hold to account those who put consumer interests and the reputation of the building industry at risk.”

The Building Services Board took disciplinary action against Frayson in April, which resulted in its building contractor registration being cancelled, its sole director and secretary Armand Noor being declared an ineligible person for one year, and both being fined and ordered to pay $20,000 in costs.
