The Department of Housing and Public Works is seeking registrations of interest (ROI) from QBCC licensed builders who can source land for residential apartment complexes of between four and twenty units in size and then build the apartments to the specification and design provided by the department. The department will buy the land from successful applicants and then make progress payments throughout construction.
The QBCC has issued a tender for an adjudication qualification course provider.
The appointed provider will be required to prepare and deliver a new adjudication qualification course for individuals who wish to apply for registration as adjudicators, under the Building and Construction Industry Payments Act 2004 (Qld) (Act).
Over the last 12 months, we have had 1097 dispute cases lodged by builders and home owners.
The early dispute resolution service, which was introduced on 1 July, 2014, has filled a gap in support services for builders and home owners who had issues during the construction process.
Prior to the introduction of this service, there was no assistance offered to builders and home owners in dispute until after the contract had been terminated or completed. This was simply too late to achieve a good outcome for both parties.
