Building Contracts and Sub Contracts

For 25 years we have provided advice on all building contracts and sub-contracts and on building contract and sub-contracts disputes including payment claims, disputes over variations, Construction Contract Act claims, disputes over delays in building works and claims over defective works and appearances in all courts.

Our practice is located outside of the Perth CBD and because of this our hourly rates and fixed prices for commercial work and for litigation are 20% lower than the standard rates charged by most Perth law firms.  Our rates are extremely competitive compared to the rates charged by other commercial law firms. 

We act for builders, developers, sub-contractors, engineers, surveyors and architects as well as owners of residential and commercial property on all building contract and payment disputes.  We advise on all Building and Construction contracts including Australian Standards and HIA contracts.

We advise clients before they sign building contracts on important terms.  We advise sub-contractors on all clauses to be wary of in the contracts provided to them by head contractors/principals.

We have successfully handled large construction disputes in all courts, in the State Administrative Tribunal ('SAT') and in the Building Disputes Tribunal for all sorts of clients including construction companies, structural steel companies, sub-contractors, developers and home owners.
