MONTHS after losing their builders’ registration, Fulfil The Dream’s incomplete Bassendean apartments have been given demolition orders by the town.

The Town of Bassendean administration said the town has issued a building order to demolish the partially constructed development at 28 Scaddan Street, Bassendean due to concerns associated with the development.

“The order is subject to an appeal with the State Administrative Tribunal and until this process is resolved the town cannot provide any further information,” a town spokesperson said.

The apartments were being built by FTD construction Pty Ltd (also known as Fulfil The Dream), who last September had the renewal of their builders’ contractor registration refused by the Building Services Board.

A Department of Energy, Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety’s Building and Energy division spokesperson said that FTD construction did not appeal the loss of their registration.

“As such, FTD Construction Pty Ltd is no longer a registered building contractor,” they said.

The decision was made by the board after an investigation into FTD Construction in which the Building and Energy division was left unsatisfied that FTD had met the financial requirements for registration, or that the company had arrangements in place to ensure proficient management of the company and supervision of building services by FTD.

Fulfil The Dream’s website states that construction of the Bassendean apartments is underway and due to be completed in February 2024.

The website states the value as $2 million, with eight apartments planned for the site.

“The build consists of high ceilings, bulkheads in all rooms, marble staircases, double glazed windows and doors, and much more within all apartments.

“This will easily be one of the most luxurious listings in the neighbourhood,” FTD’s website states.
