Building Act changes affecting building owners, property professionals and contractors.
Hendry advises building owners, property professionals and contractors involved in the building and property industry to be aware of recent significant changes to the Victorian Building Act that will affect them.
These changes can place you, your company and your contractor in a vulnerable position. A contractor under the Act, is deemed to be anyone who; performs building works, alterations or rectification works, such as fire services, HVAC, electrical or general building work.
Commissioning of Buildings under the Building Regulations.
Hendry advises building surveyors are often called upon to consider departures from codes and the building regulations after building works are complete. Unfortunately supervision during a building project is diminishing, which means designers are not supervising, or not allowed to monitor the installation of systems to their designs. This can result in untimely delays in obtaining a final sign off should faults be identified by the building surveyor.
“Brian worked with us a month out, listened very quickly. Hendry is easy to work with. Understood the tight timeframes and understood the scope of works”
“You provide a high standard of paperwork in the work you do. You keep in regular contact with us. We use you for more specialist work, difficult areas where we do not get much access. Hendry is very good at getting the information”
“Hendry is very professional in their dealings and quick to respond. Extremely satisfied with Matthew. He shows a genuine interest in my success and that of my business”
“Really efficient, understands what the government agencies require in terms of standards”
“Matthew is a very competent certifier in the transport sector. He is open to the challenge and works with us to find a way around any issues. Although our project has had a few delays due to changes in the scope of work, Matthew has been very reasonable with a transparent open book approach”
