Welcome to the Construction Bulletin – a snapshot of the latest news and activity from the construction, property and infrastructure industries.

In this bulletin we:

  • review how an adjudicator’s jurisdiction is set under the Construction Contracts Act 2002;
  • examine how a class of litigants is established in a class action dispute and outline the key points that commercial parties should be aware of in respect of a class action;
  • discuss the Building (Building Products and Methods, Modular Components, and Other Matters) Amendment Bill which looks to improve the efficiency of non-traditional building methods, such as modular homes; and 
  • review March's construction and infrastructure legal and market activity.
