Building & construction litigation

Redchip’s building and construction team takes a practical approach to all stages of a building matter, from the negotiations and contract drafting to disputes arising under the contract.

We assume there is a likelihood that disputes will arise between parties entering into any construction or agreement, and take the approach that pre-warned is pre-armed.


Our clients include property developers, builders, principals, subcontractors, consultants and professionals, suppliers and homeowners.

Redchip’s team are experienced and regularly provide advice in the areas of:

  • Drafting of terms and conditions for suppliers.
  • Making and responding to claims under the Building Industry Fairness (Security of Payment) Act.
  • Preparation of payment claims and payment schedules.
  • Residential and commercial building disputes.
  • Making and responding to applications under the Building Industry Fairness (Security of Payment) Act.
  • Debt recovery for contractors and suppliers.
  • Acting for homeowners in terminating a contract and making a claim on the QBCC’s Home Warranty Scheme.
  • Reviewing the decisions of the QBCC on behalf of either homeowners or builders.
  • Acting for builders and building directors in resisting claims by the QBCC under the Queensland Building and Construction Commission Act.
