Building and Construction Law
As one of Tasmania’s leading building and construction law practices, Simmons Wolfhagen has experience and expertise in all aspects of building & construction industry, whether in relation to large scale civil works, commercial or industrial developments or smaller home building projects.
Building and Construction Services
We understand that large and small construction projects can be major investments for the parties involved and any disputes that develop can have significant implications for the project. The narrow commercial margins experienced in the building & construction industry mean that managing, avoiding and resolving contractual and legal issues goes a long way to securing commercial success.
We work closely with our clients to understand their requirements, issues and needs then tailor our solutions to address the concerns of the parties involved to allow the project to get back on track.
Dispute Resolution Services
We advise claimants and respondents in all aspects of dispute resolution, adjudication and litigation. In many cases it is preferable for our clients to settle their cases on acceptable terms rather than to go to adjudication or to litigate and our team is specialised in alternative dispute resolution.
When initial mediation is unsuccessful in providing a way forward, we have extensive experience navigating the Tasmanian courts and Tribunals and are well respected by the industry at large for our candour and no nonsense approach to building & construction matters.
Consultative and Advisory services
We provide fully consultative support and advisory services and are ready to address any building or construction issue you may encounter no matter how small or large.
A range of adjacent specialities – such as planning, property, environment and WHS – ensure that the unique aspects of each project are considered with our solutions often adding real value to project outcomes.
Our whole project-life-cycle contracting capabilities – from tendering, through to delivery and dispute resolution – benefit our clients by combining a single point of contact with a broad range of skills and perspectives, ensuring even complex matters are managed efficiently and effectively.
We can assist our clients across all stages of the construction cycle, including:
- traditional procurement (eg D&C, EPC and Build-Only) and public-private partnerships;
- risk identification and management to ensure projects reach a timely and cost-effective financial close;
- contract interpretation, application and management;
- operator-led infrastructure delivery and services outsourcing (eg O&M, services contracts); and
- augmentations and major modifications.
