Designed for you: Master Builders contracts


rom where I sit, at the front desk at Master Builders’ headquarters in East Melbourne, of all the contracts we offer, the New Homes and Home Improvement edition is by far the most popular. And for good reason. These contracts are designed to cover almost all the domestic builders needs when starting any renovation or new home project. However we also stock commercial contracts, where the ‘General Conditions of Contract’ is the most popular. This contract is written by Master Builders Association of Victoria to be between a contractor and an owner directly, without a third party contract administrator, for use in Victoria. It is the most “builder friendly” standard commercial contract available. The new look version will be available shortly and is also available to purchase online as an e-contract. We also have a range of national commercial contracts available which are prepared mostly by Master Builders Australia. These include the ‘Construction Management CM 2012’ contract, and ‘Design and Construction Lump Sum’. As the title suggests the Construction management CM 2012 contract is for use where there is a construction manager who usually is not physically undertaking the work, but instead is acting as the principal’s agent in organising works and engaging contractors and consultants. The primary purpose of the ‘Design and Construction Lump Sum’ contract is to transfer the design liability from the principal to the contractor. In addition to the head contracts we also have the following commercial subcontracts in stock: ■ Period Trade Contract ■ Independent Contracts Agreement ■ TC 2012 Trade Contract ■ Decon 2013 Subcontract For those jobs where an architect will be overseeing the work, we have the Australian Building Industry Contracts (ABIC) available. These are primarily prepared by the Australian Institute of Architects with some input from

Master Builders Australia. These include: ■ ABIC Simple Works - Housing ■ ABIC Simple Works- Commercial ■ ABIC Major Works- Housing ■ ABIC Major Works- Commercial ■ ABIC Commercial Cost Plus- Commercial We are often asked to explain the difference is between the ‘Simple Works’ and ‘Major Works’ contracts. The main difference is not so much the value of the contract works but more their complexity. The ‘Major Works’ is

similar to the ‘Simple Works’ but, among other elements, includes the provision for additional security to a contractor and provision for separable parts. Please understand the above is not legal advice and we strongly suggest seeking independent legal advice before using a contract if you are uncertain it fits your needs. We continually review our contracts to ensure they are best suited to protect our members, and offered at a great value.

WHAT’S NEW AFS launches new patented rediwall® speedy-snap-inTM range including revolutionary ezy-fitTM corner panel Australian permanent formwork system manufacturer AFS has launched its new versatile rediwall® speedy-snap-inTM range. “Our new rediwall® speedy-snap-inTM system is the simple, cost-effective answer to conventional concrete and masonry,” explains Steve Darwell, CSR General Manager New Business Development. “The new lightweight PVC panels simply snap together by hand and are then ready to be core-filled. You don’t even need a formed deck for installation. The speedy-snap-in system includes a patented revolutionary 90 degree ezy-fitTM corner panel. The cover section is removable, which allows complete unobstructed access for the trouble-free installation of reinforcement bars. The rediwall® speedy-snap-inTM system comes in three panel sizes – 110mm, 156mm and 200mm. Combined with new ezy-fit corner panels, the rediwall® speedy-snap-inTM system is extremely versatile. Its clean, even and UV and waterproof surface offers a superior gloss finish, which in many applications doesn’t require any finishing.

The most comprehensive termite warranty in Australia If your home has a Kordon® Termite Barrier installed* (*full installation), you can choose to activate and be covered by the Bayer Protection Program. You will be protected by an exclusive $1 million warranty! It’s easy! The Bayer Protection Warranty starts with an inspection of the home by a Bayer Accredited Timber Pest Inspector. If the home is termite-free, and possible conditions which may be conducive to termite attack are addressed, your Bayer Protection Warranty can be renewed. The same inspection takes place each year to give the homeowner total termite protection. This warranty can be renewed annually (fee applies) for the life of the structure. The Bayer Protection Warranty covers homeowners for up to $1 million worth of termite damage due to product failure or any other means of termite entry. Activate your Bayer Protection Warranty by visiting www.kordonwarrantycentre.com.au For further information on the Kordon Termite Barrier, Bayer Protection Warranty and Frequently Asked Questions visit www.kordonwarrantycentre. com.au or contact the Bayer Protection team on 1800 552 802.

The tough and robust PVC panels are designed with large kidney-shaped holes for better concrete flow during core filling. The shape of the hole in the 200mm panel allows for double or single reinforced steel placement. It also allows single reinforced steel to be offset to one side to further optimise performance. Key benefits • Available in 110mm, 156mm and 200mm profiles • New ezy-fit corner – an industry first • Lightweight panels offering ease of installation – minimal training required • Tough, rigid, durable panels • Precision-extruded components snap into place, automatically interconnecting for rapid assembly • Large holes for better concrete flow • Kidney shaped hole (200mm) for double, single or single offset reinforcement placement • Water resistant • High quality low maintenance surface that in many applications doesn’t require finishing • Range of new accessories • Cut-to-size option to reduce wastage
