Construction & Engineering Breakfast Series: Seminar 2 - Brisbane

Oct 2015 |

You have signed a construction contract but is that all you need? With many recent developments in the construction industry, our team has first hand experience with respect to how these changes are effecting construction projects.

During this series of presentations, our team will explain some of the issues and key points of interest relevant to contractors, principals and consultants who work in construction and development.

Seminar 2: Protecting your position – contractual and statutory protective measures in construction projects

Presented by Mark Kenney, Special Counsel and Matt Couper, Partner

In a construction project context, when do you need to think about protecting your rights and interests and what are the various statutory and contractual mechanisms available for doing so?

This seminar will discuss:

  • Types of security from bank guarantees through to tripartite agreements and some less traditional methods of security;
  • Assessing the financial viability of counterparties and guarantors;
  • Other common risks and how to minimise them, including PPSA in the construction space; and
  • Practical issues with enforceability - when to take steps to protect your rights and interests and how best to do so.
