Important COVID-19 Update

x

These are certainly challenging times for us all.

We are committed to doing everything we can to prioritise the wellbeing of our people, those who use our services and their representatives and the communities we serve to help contain the spread of COVID-19. Following the Prime Minister’s announcement on Saturday, our people will begin working remotely from today, Monday 23 March.

Having well developed online dispute resolution options, it will in many ways be business as usual for us as we focus on providing a seamless service, regardless of where our Registry staff, adjudicators, arbitrators and mediators are working.

We know you are working through similar challenges to ours and that these are uncertain times for everyone. From all of us here we send our thoughts to you, your teams and families.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch. Please let us know if we can be of further assistance to you and we will keep you informed with any further updates.

FORMS AND PRECEDENTS

Under the Construction Contracts Act, parties are required to use specific forms in relation to progress claims, payment schedules, notices of adjudication and notices of suspension.  Failure to provide the required notice will have serious consequences.  It is essential therefore, that proper notice is given in the form prescribed by the Act.

Set out in this section are a series of template documents, which comply with the requirements of the Act, which you may download and use free of charge. This library is regularly updated to ensure our forms and precedents remain current and comply with any statutory amendments. As such, we would advise you to return to this page each time you wish to access any of these documents so that you can be sure you are using the most up-to-date version of the document.
