BCI MILE­STONE

BCI cel­e­brated its 25th an­niver­sary in style with a dou­ble-decker that will no doubt be a strong com­peti­tor in an ex­pand­ing Aus­tralasian mar­ket for high-ris­ers. The qual­ity of this dou­ble-decker shows how far BCI has come in the 25 years since Ron Naz­zari kicked off in Perth, where the com­pany is still based, with deal­er­ships in each state and ter­ri­tory and in New Zealand. BCI has op­er­ated out of its own pur­pose-built fac­tory at Xi­a­men in China since 2011 un­der an Aus­tralian team led by well-known in­dus­try de­signer Boyd Den­ning. BCI is one of only a few man­u­fac­tur­ers able to sup­ply dou­ble-deck­ers to the Aus­tralian mar­ket, which has a grow­ing ap­petite for high-rise com­muter units, at least in Syd­ney and Mel­bourne.

COURT OR­DER

A Gold Coast tour bus op­er­a­tor will face the Fed­eral Cir­cuit Court in Bris­bane over claims it en­gaged in sham con­tract­ing and un­der­paid two work­ers from non-English speak­ing back­grounds more than $43,400. The Fair Work Om­buds­man (FWO) ini­ti­ated the case against AVA Travel after re­ceiv­ing a re­quest for as­sis­tance from an em­ployee.
