Construction and Major Projects

From conception and negotiation, through project delivery and right up until the end of the defects liability period you need a strong and available legal team to help you manage your risk and protect your bottom line. So what does it look like to have PBL on your team throughout your next construction project?

Negotiations


If you can get us involved on the ground floor, even if it’s just in the background, the negotiation stage is the best time to do it.

Why?

Because we know from experience which bits tend to affect you the most, and it’s not always the ones that people focus on.

So with your commercial focus for your business and our eye for detail on the technical side, together we can make sure that you’re on the front foot from day one of the contract.

Want to know if you should issue a notice? Or whether something complies with the contract? Want to understand a complex time bar provision? Just give us a call, as the legal team for your project.

Contract Review


A contract review isn’t just a massive legal essay that forms part of your insurance policy if things go pear-shaped down the track.

Done right, a contract review will help you deliver your project profitably, manage your risk and comply with critical timeframes.

From an analysis of the clauses to practical forms and checklists and right through to practical training if you need it, we can help ensure for every project that you and your team are ready to have things running like a well-oiled machine.

Project Delivery


In almost every case, what will make the difference between a project being profitable or not is how well you administer the contract.

Now, of course, we understand that it’s not the most interesting part of delivering a large construction project.

But if you can ensure that your contract administration accords with the contract, retains your rights, and doesn’t rock the boat too much with the other party along the way, then you’re going to be well set up to deal with any issues that might come up along the way.

Defects, Delays and Claims


Things don’t always go precisely according to plan. In fact, they basically never go according to plan.

And when the unexpected arises, the question on everyone’s lips will be: who has to pay for it?

And while we can’t change the fact that you struck 15 metres of granite instead of soft soil, we can help you ensure that you do everything needed under the contract so that you don’t bear the cost.

Of course, if a disagreement happens, then we can help you persuade the other party why your position is the best one to take.

Adjudication and Security of Payment


For many construction companies around Australia, a project can fall in a heap very quickly if the cash flow dries up.

The Security of Payment legislation around Australia (in its various different forms) is designed to help speed up the payment process and ensure that you can continue working the project through to completion.

Using the process, however, can be technical, paperwork heavy and requires strict timeframes to be met.

This is one of those times you’ll want a legal team to help you along the way. So if you’re making a claim or responding to one, give us a call before you click the “send” button.

Dispute Resolution and Litigation


”Speak softly, and carry a big stick”.

Teddy Roosevelt had this one right, and dispute resolution is no different.

Basically, litigation sucks and nobody wants to be involved in it.

Unfortunately, sometimes you aren’t left with any choice – you need to protect your interests, and the other options have been whittled away.

PBL can speak softly when you need it, but we also carry a pretty big stick.
