Wollongong brickies retirement hit by aged care centre builder

A Wollongong-based bricklaying company has been left more than $1 million out of pocket over the refusal of a builder to pay his bills.

Workers from City Bricklaying yesterday drove to Sydney’s North Shore to protest outside the latest project by Grindley Construction, which specialises in building aged care and retirement facilities for the not-for-profit sector.

The money outstanding to City Bricklaying relates to a completed CatholicCare aged care facility built by Grindley Construction at Croydon Park in Sydney.
