Understanding the Construction Contracts Act **online ZOOM**


This interactive live ZOOM training session is delivered as a 3 hr session

The Construction Contracts Act 2002 applies to all construction contracts that relate to the carrying out of construction work in New Zealand, whether the contract is in writing, oral, or a mixture of both, and whether it is for commercial or residential construction.

It has four key objectives:

  • To protect retention money withheld under commercial construction contracts
  • To help ensure a fair, balanced and appropriate payment regime
  • To provide a fast and cost-effective adjudication process for people with disputes
  • To provide enforcement mechanisms to recover any unmade payments

This course, from a practical and ‘hands-on’ point of view, will benefit Clients, Consultants and Contractors wanting to understand the key provisions of this Act, and how it applies to them.
