More than 130 tradies, staff hit by collapse of builder

THE collapse of a Gold Coast building company has left 133 tradies and staff more than $3.4 million out of pocket and 35 would-be home-owners in limbo.

The Queensland Building and Construction Commission has suspended the licence of Queensland One Homes, which was put into liquidation last month, the Gold Coast Bulletin reports.

A related company, Empire Constructions Pty Ltd, is under investigation for suspected illegal phoenix activity.
