This half day seminar and workshop will address the following issue: “What changes need to be made to construction Contracts for BIFSOPA legislation and new cases in construction law?”.

The seminar and workshop will enable you to:

  • Understand how to amend your contract to deal with the latest BIFSOPA, QBCC amendments, new case law and the new timelines.

  • Discuss and understand the latest contract clauses required as a result of cases on the BCIPA, BIFSOPA, QBCC Act & PPS Act.

  • Understand what you can do by amending your contract to maximise your protection from dubious EOT and delay claims.

  • Discuss and understand the latest contract amendments dealing with conversion of security, final certificates, termination and deeds of release.

  • Discuss the effect of the recent decisions on latent defect claims.

  • Examine contract clauses dealing with:

    • preconditions to payment claims – are they affective anymore?

    • termination for convenience – a dangerous weapon;

    • deeds of release – will they defeat a BCIPA claim?

    • EOT and delay claims;

    • time bars – do they work?

    • warranties to purchasers and body corporates for latent defects;

    • conversion of security in response to an adjudication decision; and

    • how to apply liquidated damages even if you caused the delay.

  • In a workshop setting you will deal with an actual contract and negotiate an outcome.
