In a country of so few, concentrated as we are in a handful of cities facing the prospect of growing up not out, lost opportunities for better management of our strata communities is bureaucratically reprehensible. The development community crossed state boundaries many years ago to deliver ever more complex but interesting forms of building that have us live as we want but our strata laws hold us back. When it comes to the long-term health and happiness of these buildings and the relationships that must exist within, how can they meet their potential without sharing ideas? How can we expect strata management companies to become better and achieve scale if we make them build eight working platforms and systems when just one would do? Software development, knowledge and ultimately client service will suffer at the hands of language barriers until we develop a common language for the administration of our common property.
