Panel for the review of developers in the building and construction industry
The Queensland Building and Construction Commission Act 1991 (QBCC Act) requires that a review of the role of developers in the building and construction industry be undertaken and that a report on the outcomes of the review be tabled by the Minister in Parliament.
The review follows building and construction industry feedback about the important role of developers, and the need to examine the impact of their financial and operational capacity, ethical behaviour and work practices.
This will support the Queensland Government’s commitment to ensure all participants in the industry are operating on a fair and level playing field.
About the Panel
The Developer Review Panel was announced by the Minister on 13 November 2021, with membership as follows:
- Chair - Ms Alison Quinn
- Member - Ms Gina Patrick
- Member - Mr John Payne
- Member - Mr Adrian Pozzo.
In accordance with the Terms of Reference (PDF, 399.2 KB), the Panel will:
- advance the work already done by the Queensland Government to support security of payment in the building and construction industry, mainly in relation to subcontractors, and to effect change from a culture of late or non-payment to a culture of on-time payment. The Panel will examine the role of developers in this context.
- consider the impact developers have on the quality and safety of design, construction and certification of buildings and other work practices, including the incidence of defective works.
The Panel will be supported by an Industry Reference Group (IRG). Once established, details of the IRG members will be detailed here.
The Panel will develop a stakeholder engagement plan to ensure industry and community access to the review process.
All stakeholders involved in the building and construction industry, including development activities, will have the opportunity to participate, including developers, builders, subcontractors, the finance and insurance sectors, the legal sector and consumers.
More details about these activities will be provided as they become available.
