Danile John Smith is a repeat offender in the Queensland building market. He initially built our property under the guise of DJ Smith Construction Pty. Ltd. 

In addition to running many months over the agreed construction period, Mr. Smith did terribly defective works and misappropriated funds. Eventually the then Queensland Building Authority was forced to step in and deregister Mr. Smith and his company which later went into liquidation owing many thousands of dollars to suppliers, works and the tax department.

Mr. Smith was banned from being a "Person of Influence" in a building company for 5 years. Immediately upon that ban lapsing Mr. Smith launched the now defunct RICC Group which suffered a similar fate - leaving many home owners, employees, sub-contractors and suppliers out of pocket.

Mr. Smith then launched a company 24/7 Building & Maintenance Pty. Ltd. under the guise of his wife being a director of that company - which duly folded owing the Australian Tax Department significant funds.

Mr. Smith then went and worked for a spate of other builders in a "supervisory" capacity avoiding detection by the Queensland Building Services Authority by not "technically" being a "person of influence" these building companies. Even though he is "overseeing" these works. Please refer to Mr. Smith's prior history at the following governmental links:

It has now been bought to our attention that Mr. Smith recently started working in a "supervisory" capacity for "Build 4U Quality Constructions" a company located in Buderim on Queensland's Sunshine Coast. If you have any dealings with this company, do yourself a favour and ENSURE Daniel John Smith isn't "supervising" your build, as the best predictor of the future is the past and in the past Mr. Smith has only supervised chaos, shoddy workmanship (please refer above listed links) and grief for hardworking Queensland families. 

By all means contract with Build 4U Quality Constructions Pty. Ltd. but ensure that Daniel John Smith has NOTHING to do with your building process whatsoever, otherwise your experience is bound to end in grief.

Daniel J Smith Build 4 U Brisbane

AUTHOR: Gotcha - (Australia)

Daniel J Smith (Dan Smith) is at it again!

After being banned as a builder after being a director of DJ Smith Construction Pty. Ltd., then the RICC Group and most lately as a “shadow” director of 24-7 Building and Maintenance Pty. Ltd. Daniel J Smith is back and working in a supervisory capacity for Build 4 U Murarrie.

Dan Smith is currently being chased by liquidators (please see attached documentation verifying this), as well as former employees for failure to pay superannuation fees as well as the Australian Tax Office.

Not being allowed to be a company director – because he’s a multiple bankrupt – Dan Smith threw his wife Sasha under the bus, installing her as a “director” of 24-7 Building and Maintenance Pty. Ltd. and running it into the ground with debts owed throughout South East Queensland.

The QBCC has (repeatedly) banned Dan Smith from being a “person of interest” in a building company for defective building works and financial non-compliance, but he keeps popping up, his latest incarnation as an “employee” of Build 4 U – Brisbane located at 33 Queensport Road South Murarrie – see website:

If you’re chasing money owed to you by Daniel J Smith, he can be contacted on 0408 468 302 or emailed direct at – we are certain that Build 4 U Brisbane, a subsidiary of Build 4 U on the Sunshine Coast is unaware of Daniel J Smith’s prior history – who could they know, no-one in their right mind would employ this individual to oversee building works with his extensive, well documented history of defective works and financial non-compliance in the building industry.

If you have the misfortune to come across Daniel J Smith when dealing with Build 4 U be sure to request another supervise or simply take your business elsewhere, otherwise your building project will end in tragedy like so many others over the last decade.
