Gadens new web application for Building Codes

Gadens recently launched a user-friendly web application to assist head contractors and subcontractors to be compliant with building codes for Commonwealth funded work.

Corporate Advisory Partner Jonathon Hadley, a specialist in workplace relations, said: “There are strict building codes for Commonwealth funded work which could ultimately result in exclusion sanctions if contractors don’t meet their obligations.”

“The codes are complex and our new web application is a step-by-step tool that will save contractors time in regards to them fully understanding their rights and responsibilities,” Mr Hadley said.

“Embracing our digital platforms will enable contractors to assess compliance obligations relating to building codes while on a construction site.”
