Building & Construction
We acted for a civil contractor in a claim for non payment for civil construction undertaken on a large festival site in Northern NSW. The claim involved claims for breach of contract, breach of the Trade Practices Act and a claim for work done. The proceedings were successfully resolved through mediation and negotiation.
We are acting for the owners corporation of a large hotel and apartment complex on the Central Coast against a builder in Supreme Court litigation where claims involve alleged defective works arising from negligence.
We are acting for a property owner against a builder in relation to a large supermarket and shop development at Lake Macquarie in an arbitration under the Commercial Arbitration Act 2010 (NSW).
We regularly act for principals and contractors in disputes arising under the Building and Construction Industry Security of Payment Act 1999 (NSW). One of our partners, Sean O’Sullivan, is an adjudicator with Adjudicate Today and is frequently appointed to determine disputes arising under the security of payment legislation of various States.
