Building and construction developer review
Public consultation for the Developer Review has now closed.
The Developer Review Panel are considering the feedback received, and developing their final report.
The Developer Review Panel (the Panel) has been appointed under the Queensland Building and Construction Commission Act 1991 (QBCC Act) to conduct a review of the role of developers in the building and construction industry. The review follows industry feedback about the important role of developers, and the need to examine the impact of their financial and operational capacity, ethical behaviours and work practices.
The remit of the Panel is to:
- advance the work already done by the Queensland Government to support security of payment in the building and construction industry; and
- consider the impact developers have on the quality and safety of design, construction and certification of buildings and other work practices.
Role of the Panel
The Panel is guided by its Terms of Reference, as well as its workplan and stakeholder engagement plan. These plans outline,
- the key areas of focus for the review
- how the Panel has defined ‘development activity’ to inform the scope of the review
- how the Panel will communicate and consult with industry and the community
- the timing for the Panel’s activities.
