We know how to reduce risks and reduce costs for all parties, including subcontractors and property developers.
Building and construction contracts are legally binding agreements. Most importantly, they are crafted in accordance with building and construction laws depending on the Australian state you are in and are designed to clarify your rights throughout the building process.
Commercial construction contracts are crucial documents when a dispute arises and as such, should only be drafted by a lawyer with specialist building contract knowledge. In such a fast-paced industry, when things go wrong or a building dispute becomes apparent, your construction contract is the main document you (and an Adjudicator or Court) will refer to and should clearly set out your rights.
Building and construction contracts are rarely similar and depending on the size of the companies and projects involved, it takes an experienced construction specialist to conduct a thorough construction contract review to protect you should things go wrong. Each new project and all amendments require the trained eye of a specialist to interpret the real life context of the building and construction project.
This review process:
- Identifies clauses that need to be amended to protect your interests;
- Explains to you the critical clauses in a language that is easily understood;
- Checks the parties involved to identify any possible issues;
- Demystifies complicated subcontracts that may contain what look like standard terms, but which may have hidden risks; and
- Provides industry advice in a tailored fashion to suit your needs.
