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.
