Building and Construction Lawyers

The building and construction law of Australia aims to settle disputes relating to building and construction activities including insurance, dispute resolution, regulation, contracts and problems that arise in construction projects.

What is Building and Construction Law?

The building and construction law is the legislation that covers the building and construction activities and all people connected to such activities in Australia. It is common knowledge that building and construction activities always involve a high risk. Accidents can happen anytime. Safety issues, accidents, defects in the structure and design, and negligence on the part of the contractors, architects or engineers can lead to disputes among parties concerned in the building and construction activity. The building and construction law is aimed at settling such disputes among the people concerned. It is also aimed to set certain rules and regulations on building and construction.

Who Needs Building and Construction Lawyers?

Disputes in the commercial, industrial, and domestic building are sometimes inevitable. Issues on accidents caused by negligence and defective structural design and wrongful use of materials can rise. There may also be conflicting issues about the building and construction contract. In instances such as these, the help of a building and construction lawyer is necessary.

Building and construction lawyers can provide legal advice to the people involved in the building and construction activity. They can assist people by handling disputes that may arise in the building and construction process. They can also assist people with legal issues arising from building improvements of all sizes, including complex government projects, commercial and industrial projects, house constructions or renovations, or multi-storey developments. Specifically, these lawyers can provide help and advice on the following aspects:

  • Home warranty claims
  • Construction claims
  • Claims resolution
  • Contract interpretation, administration and advice
  • Professional liability and negligence
  • Building protection works
  • Construction litigation
  • Joint venture and business negotiation
  • Home Building Act 1989
  • Insurance claims
  • Security and payment act claims
  • Debt recovery
  • Insolvency and bankruptcy
  • Tribunal and court attendances
  • Arbitration and mediation

Typically, the clients of building and construction lawyers include developers, building contractors, builders, consultants, owners, suppliers, architects, financial institutions, quantity surveyors, engineers, and planners and designers. If you are in dispute over a construction project or is planning to have a building construction under way, it is beneficial to consult the expertise of a building and construction lawyer. A building and construction lawyer may also be needed during pre-contractual drafting and negotiations.
