CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY SET FOR FASTER DISPUTE RESOLUTION

CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY SET FOR FASTER DISPUTE RESOLUTION

THE STATE government has announced plans to speed up the process of resolving disputes in the construction industry.

Changes to the Building and Construction Industry Payments Act 2004 aim to make the system fairer and follows recent cuts to red tape in the sector.

“The building and construction industry contributes around $26 billion annually so it’s essential that we have a fair payment system in place.

Mander says the Queensland Building and Construction Commission will find relevant adjudicators instead, as well as funnel claims according to size and complexity.

“Under the new rules, respondents to large or complex claims where the sum involved is more than $750,000 will be given extra time to respond.”
