Ensuring the construction industry survives the COVID-19 lockdown

Deloitte, Hamilton Locke and Australian Constructors Association invite you to join us for an online panel discussion on the impacts on the construction industry following the NSW shutdown and the recent ‘soft’ re-opening of construction sites.

Our panelists will come together to discuss the impacts of the COVID-19 lockdown including:

  • Government support and initiatives to date, cash flow considerations, lender engagement, safe harbour and other financing options for construction industry participants.
  • Contractual claims and risk allocation for COVID-19 going forward.
  • Managing workforce calibration, stand down rights, on site safety and legality behind mandatory workforce vaccinations.
  • On site perspectives from infrastructure constructors, the need for support for the industry and the impact on project delivery.

Engineers Australia Infrastructure Thought Leaders Series: Stimulus and Recovery Funding – A project owner perspective (March 2021)

“Construction is often viewed as a zero-sum game. If I win, you lose. We don’t spend enough time at the front end of the job aligning expectations and outcomes – if we did it is possible to have a win win outcome. We can get more bang for buck if we spend more time up front aligning interests, so we are all working together if problems arise.” These are just some of the important points our CEO Jon Davies raised at the webinar.

In celebration of International Women’s Day #IWD2021 we developed a short video highlighting some of our progress in removing the barriers and improving the attractiveness of the industry to our future employees.

There is still a long way to go but we are making diversity and inclusion part of our day-to-day conversation and are committed to change.
