FORMER football great Andrew Gee’s construction company faces having its building licence suspended following complaints it has failed to pay subcontractors and suppliers.
The Queensland Building and Construction Commission (QBCC) on Thursday said it had issued show-cause notices to A&K Pty Ltd, trading as Australian Modular Homes (AMH), as a result of an investigation into complaints made by subcontractors and suppliers about non-payment. Mr Gee is the sole director of A&K.
A QBCC spokesman said that if the company failed to respond to the show-cause notices its licence would be suspended early next month.
The QBCC’s adjudication registry has also received a number of applications against the company for outstanding invoices.
The Courier-Mail has spoken to two subcontractors who claim AMH owes them money.
One subbie claimed he is owed $9000 for plumbing work completed on a job on the Gold Coast.
The subbie said the money should have been paid more than a month ago but when he tried to contact Mr Gee his phone had been disconnected.
Another supplier is reportedly owed about $40,000.
A&K holds an active builder open licence and is a category two company with a maximum allowable annual turnover of $3 million to $12 million.
The previous licence nominee has recently ceased and the company has 21 days to appoint a new one.
Mr Gee started the building company in 2015 after the end of his career as a football administrator and player.
