What is Construction Law?

Construction Law is a broad and specialised area of law within Australia. Building and construction lawyers have a thorough understanding of the National Construction Code (NCC). This code outlines the minimum requirements for the construction and design of new buildings and is issued by the Australian Building Codes Board (ABCB). The building code is made up of three volumes, the Building Code of Australia in Volumes 1 & 2 and the Plumbing Code of Australia in Volume 3. Each state of Australia also has its respective regulations and respective security of payment requirements.

As construction lawyers we have a high level of knowledge in the areas of contract law, commercial law, planning law, employment law and also tort. We are dispute resolution experts.

Construction is one of Australia’s largest industries, with more businesses working within this field than any other. Our knowledge and expertise in this area is often required across all levels of government from Federal, State and local council rules. Only a lawyer with expertise in the area of construction can ensure that your project is compliant across all levels of government.

Building projects often require large amounts of documentation. We can assist you in drafting and reviewing contracts, ensuring compliance with workplace regulations and considerations around employment law. We also assist in development applications.
