Talk to MDL for assistance with the BCIPA

(Building and Construction Industry Payments Act 2004)

The BCIPA is designed to provide builders and subcontractors with a fast and reliable payment system, when undertaking construction work or supplying related goods and services.

To get the most out of the BCIPA, ensure you make every claim – and stop work if you haven’t been paid. You should also ensure that Claims, and Responses to Claims, comply with the Act.

MDL can assist you with preparing:

  • Payment Claims
  • Payment Schedules
  • Adjudication Applications – which are made in the advent that a claimant is not satisfied with the amount outlined in a Payment Schedule
  • Adjudication Responses – which are prepared in response to our Adjudication Application
  • The review of an Adjudicator’s Decision to ensure that the adjudicator:
    • had jurisdiction to determine the Adjudication Application
    • has afforded procedural fairness to the parties
    • did not make an error
    • relied solely on the material presented to him or her by the applicant and respondent
  • Obtaining an Adjudication Certificate, which arises out of an Adjudicator’s Decision
  • Obtaining a judgment debt through the appropriate court based upon an Adjudication Certificate
