2020 Building & Construction Law Conference

The Thomson Reuters Building & Construction Law Conference has been postponed until later in the year, due to concerns related to Covid-19. While this was not an easy decision for us to make, we are confident it is the correct one in the current environment. The health and wellbeing of our speakers, attendees and staff is our highest priority.

We will be back in contact with all attendees in the coming weeks, once further details regarding new dates have been confirmed. All registered attendees will have their bookings automatically transferred to the new dates in the first instance.



Managing risk and commercial outcomes for projects continues to be front of mind for the building and construction sector, due to continued commercial volatility and legislative change.

Margins across the industry are still tight, meaning that all players are looking to offset their contract risk.

Building on the sold out 2019 event, Thomson Reuters’ 2020 Building & Construction Law Conference will address the key issues affecting the sector, including an overview of the changes to building law.

The first phase of reform to the Building Act will focus on reducing red tape in the consenting process for modern methods of construction such as off-site manufacturing and prefabrication, lowering building levies and increasing sanctions for breaches of the Act.

The conference has been designed to help you understand the key changes and developments in building and construction law focusing on practical implications and legal insight.

We look forward to meeting you at the event.
