Building and Design Practitioners Master Class

Jeffrey Goldberger, Special Counsel, Norton Rose Fulbright

NSW State Library, November 2021

Ever since the Opal Tower debacle in Sydney there has been considerable focus on the contractual and legal responsibility of construction contractors, building consultants such as architects and engineers and construction insurers. It is a complex picture involving the interaction of contract, tort and insurance law principles. In New South Wales the Design and Building Practitioners Act 2020 which came into force on 1 July 2021 needs to be woven into the tapestry. 

The purpose of this master class is to untangle the complexity and identify the key principles and how they interact and to provide a practical perspective to all the stakeholders in the Australian construction industry.

The master class covers:
  1. Tendering and contract formation issues
  2. Principles of contract interpretation
  3. Performance bonds and parent company guarantees
  4. The prevention principle and extensions of time
  5. Liquidated damages and relief against penalties
  6. Design warranties and liability for design certificates
  7. Defective building work and the statute of limitations
  8. Terminating a construction contract; the risks
