Roundtable Room: 12:00pm - 12:30pm
Cash remains the important commodity to most if not all subcontractors, this was recognised in the mid 1990’s and resulted in the ‘Construction Act’. The act has subsequently been modified but are subcontractors better off? The Act has improved the available remedies to obtain payment; but a lot of subcontractor and contractors remain unaware of their entitlements and the benefits available to them. The discussion will highlight the benefits that exist and explore if these are being implemented or the reasons that subcontractors are electing not to pursue them. After attending the discussions, the attendees will be aware of the benefits of the Construction Act and how best to employ them.
