    Oh dear.

    "The giant windows on the western end of the Perth Stadium have been installed, but must now be removed and replaced, because they are the wrong colour
    ...
    "It's at no cost to the taxpayer. It's actually a mistake by the contractor. So it won't actually have any financial impact. It also won't impact on the delivery timeline either."

    By the look of them, about 4m x 1m. Could be going cheap soon...

    @Leo2413 will probably be up to a development of the scale requiring this many windows soon the way he's going!

    So much for a great QA system.

    Oops... someone was meant to check the colour chart matched the performance spec of the glass and the order.

    That's what happens when you aren't permitted to specify a brand or trademark for fear of upsetting some other company who may have an equivalent or better solution.

    This might send the contractor to the cleaners.

    Perth Government projects have been a disaster, whose sleeping at the helm.

    What about Fiona Stanley Medical Centre another fiasco.
