Facilitate exceptional project management with expertly drafted building contracts.
Kylie Howell, the head of our construction team, is a firm believer that a well drafted contract can truly assist in the successful completion of any construction project. In an industry traditionally built on relationships a good contract will build on that and set the boundaries within which the various participants agree to operate.
A good contract will ensure all parties are clear – right from the start of a project – about what it is they need to do and will set out a framework for the resolution of any issues that might arise. As an added bonus it will also ensure you comply with the relevant contractual provisions of the Queensland Building and Construction Commission Act 1991 (Qld).
On the flip side, a poorly drafted contract can result in increased disputes, building delays and cost over runs.
Our expert lawyers understand the construction process and will ensure that you and your business are provided with a tailored contract that meets your needs and budget. We can also advise clients on any construction contracts before they are signed.

We can also provide advice in relation to various standard form contracts commonly used within the industry including:
