New construction contracts information and events available

Construction Contracts Act videos and fact sheets

Building and Energy has undertaken a full redesign of the section of our website which provides information and guidance to industry and the general public in respect of the Construction Contracts Act 2004 (the CCA).  The CCA establishes a process through which construction sector participants can access fast, cost effective dispute resolution services in respect of payment disputes under construction contracts. 

Building and Energy has developed a series of short, accessible videos on the following topics concerning the CCA:

  • Topic one: An overview of the CCA
  • Topic two: How to make a payment claim under the implied provisions of the CCA
  • Topic three: How to apply for adjudication
  • Topic four: How to respond to an application for adjudication
  • Topic five: The “determination” (or decision-making) process of the adjudicator

Each of these videos is supported by a corresponding fact sheet which outlines more detailed information on the topics and answers common questions about the CCA.  The videos and fact sheets are available on our 'Information on using the CCA' webpage.

Free contract management seminars

Building and Energy has partnered with HHG Legal Group to deliver a series of three information seminars on contract management.  These seminars are aimed to assist industry participants to understand common contractual issues and pitfalls that can arise on construction projects.

The seminars are suitable for builders, painters, plumbers, electricians and all other trade contractors who provide goods and services on construction projects.

Each of the three seminars will be run twice throughout 2018/19 in Cannington and are free to attend.  A timetable is as follows:
