You might recall that we've been busy this year trying to get the Queensland Government and Mick de Brenni to listen to what we have to say about the upcoming Building Industry Fairness Bill.

Now we want to help you.

Our resident Master Builders Members Legal expert, Tracey Wood will be presenting an information workshop on Tuesday 12 December from 3 - 5.30pm here at the Master Builders Office.

The main topics will include:

  • How does BCIPA work and what do I need to do now?
  • Chapter 3 BIF Act (which will soon replace BCIPA) - how does chapter 3 work and what do I need to do soon?

We will walk through the following elements and will discuss how they operate under BCIPA and how they will operate when it is replaced with Chapter 3 BIF Act:

  • Payment claims;
  • Payment schedules;
  • Adjudication applications;
  • Adjudication responses;
  • Enforcement of decisions.

We will also discuss the traps to avoid and the tips/tricks to strengthen the case for both claimants and respondents.  This will be a practical look at how the Act works and not just a session on what the legislation says.
