Development and Construction in a Changing Landscape - getting on with it in 2020

The distress being felt in the building and construction space as a result of COVID-19 is effecting developers and builders alike.

In these challenging and uncertain times, it is important to get it right from the beginning by having a proper understanding of how the planning laws work and how they can work for you. 

Once a consent is obtained and construction underway, you need to know what to look for in a failing project, how to mitigate any potential loss and how to plan for the future to make sure your project can seamlessly get back on track.

In this seminar Bartier Perry partners, Sharon Levy and Dennis Loether team up with Gilbert de Chalain from HDC Planning to discuss:

  • the latest trends in planning agreements

  • what lies ahead for developer contributions

  • how to modify your consent mid construction

  • issues with the certification regime and obtaining occupation certificates

  • early warning signs of a failing project and what to do if a builder fails

  • what to do if you are a builder facing an inability to complete a project

  • debt recovery options available during a COVID-19 environment
