News | Gadens launches new web application for Building Codes
3 May 2018
Gadens has launched a user-friendly web application to assist head contractors and subcontractors to be compliant with building codes for Commonwealth funded work.
Corporate Advisory Partner Jonathon Hadley, a specialist in workplace relations, said: “There are strict building codes for Commonwealth funded work which could ultimately result in exclusion sanctions if contractors don’t meet their obligations.”
The codes set out the Australian Government’s expected standards for all building industry participants involved in Commonwealth-funded construction projects and places obligations on funding entities both during the procurement of Commonwealth funded building work and during the conduct of that work.
“The codes are complex and our new web application is a step-by-step tool that will save contractors time in regards to them fully understanding their rights and responsibilities,” Mr Hadley said.
“Gadens is a firm that takes pride in offering value-added services and this latest initiative demonstrates our commitment to go the extra yard for our clients.
“Embracing our digital platforms will enable contractors to assess compliance obligations relating to building codes while on a construction site.”
