29 April / Quality Alert

Protection of People & Property

INCLUDING NEIGHBOURING PROPERTY (BUILDINGS AND INFRASTRUCTURE) & EXISTING STRUCTURES ON SITE (INCLUDING BASEMENTS)

Overview

It is important that all Hutchies’ project teams fully understand what is required for the protection of people, neighbouring property and existing structures whilst working on site. This is part of Hutchies’ legislative and contractual obligations. 

There is good reason for increased regulator and media attention directed at this issue. Without adequate protection in place, damage and incidents can occur with disastrous consequences.

It is critical that a proven construction method is used to prevent collapse and minimise or prevent damage/injury. Effective communication should be established and distributed to all interested parties for the life of the project.

Read the alert for more details. 

Actions

Read through the detailed alert linked above.

It is broken up into relevant sections so that you can apply the guidance to the stage you are at on your project.

A checklist has been created to guide you through completing all required processes and actions.

The checklist (above) is a guide and a LIVE document that you use to regularly review against the identification / investigation / design / construction processes. Modify as necessary for your project to reflect the aspects for consideration for each unique project. 

For further guidance, please contact us and review the additional resources listed at the bottom of the alert.

11 November / Update

Hutchies is currently experiencing a wave of site visits and inspections from the ABCC right around the country. During these visits the ABCC is assessing Hutchies’ compliance with Building Code 2016.

It is essential that you read this update and apply all of the Code compliance measures outlined to be confident that your project is compliant, and Hutchies is not exposed when these visits and inspections occur.

Compliance with Building Code 2016 is necessary for Hutchies to undertake projects funded by the Federal Government and non-compliance can lead to sanctions and other significant penalties.
