The building and construction industry in Australia, by its nature, generates a large number of disputes. With every building project that experiences a delay, or which comes to a standstill, there are potential job losses, loss of revenue and in some cases, corporate collapse.

Our team understands the specific processes available to deal with building and construction disputes, and to minimise or recover the loss when a project does not proceed according to plan.

We are experienced in:

  • Building and Construction Industry Payment Act 2004 (Qld) (and equivalent acts in other Australian jurisdictions) – payment claims and schedules, adjudication;
  • Subcontractors Charges Act 1974 (Qld) – preparing subcontractors charges, enforcement proceedings for subcontractors charges; and
  • Queensland Civil & Administrative Tribunal – defending applications against builders for defective building works, applications by builders against home owners for breach of contract or failure to pay.
