First responder retires!


Vic Reynolds has been involved in the plumbing, pipeline and building industry for close to 50 years, and, as client liaison manager at Plumber & Electrician To The Rescue, many of you will know him through his role at the SCA (NSW) on the Strata Services committee.

Vic said he is content and happy knowing he is leaving the Strata industry with a positive future, “You’ve no idea how happy I am to be retiring when finally, consumers of NSW’s residential construction will be able to trust that their apartment complex has been built properly.”

“For many years at Plumber & Electrician To The Rescue we have been ‘first responders’, called to investigate plumbing and electrical issues that were sadly traced back to poor building construction – water leaks, waterproofing, ground subsidence, the list goes on. Now, with the help of SCA lobbying, the NSW Government reform ‘Construct NSW’ headed by the NSW Building Commissioner David Chandler, is the most significant improvement to the industry in my lifetime. I can’t impress enough how long overdue this major goal of ‘Trustworthy buildings’ is.”

Vic said he has particularly enjoyed assisting with the much-needed support Plumber & Electrician To The Rescue continually provides to the Barnardos Auburn Children’s Family Centre.

His friendliness, personable approach and willingness to share industry knowledge will be sorely missed around the Strata hallways of Sydney.  Vic said he wants to thank all those who he has dealt with over many years in the strata industry, and particularly the team at Plumber & Electrician To The Rescue.
