The Australian construction industry continues to face a series of extraordinary challenges in the form of high demand, global supply chain disruptions, labour and materials shortages and inflationary pressures.



For principals and contractors alike, it is key to the ongoing health of a project to have a contract in place which lays the ground rules for allocating (or sharing) these risks.

During this session, we will examine the impacts that these challenges are having on the procurement of new projects, by discussing recent trends in selection of contracting strategies and delivery models and key considerations for principals and contractors when tendering and negotiating their contractual arrangements in the current environment.

Who should attend?

Anyone interested!

Learning Outcomes 

We will explore:

  • the standard form contracts available in the market and whether they are suitable for the current challenges;

  • alternative models to traditional risk allocation becoming more commonplace in the market; and

  • practical tips and advice on common approaches to specific risks.
