2018 Building & Construction Law Conference

The 2018 Building & Construction Law Conference took place on 1 March 2018 at the Stamford Plaza in Auckland. The conference was a sold out event, attracting a wide range of participants from the building and construction sector, including lawyers, project managers, directors, surveyors, engineers and consultants. The diversity of perspectives created a rich forum for discussion and debate on a host of topical construction issues, including regulation of overseas building materials, “litigation proofing” your construction contracts, complying with the new Earthquake-Prone Buildings arrangements and liability for defective building construction. Speakers included leaders in the industry, academics and government representatives responsible for overseeing building regulation and enforcement, presenting delegates with an excellent opportunity to engage and network with experts in the building and construction sector.

A post-conference workshop was also hosted on 2 March focused on dispute resolution in the construction sector. The workshop was well attended, engaging and interactive, providing attendees the opportunity to role-play and think critically about the various dispute resolution options and consequences present in the construction sector.

We’d like to thank the speakers and attendees of our conference and workshop for their participation, and look forward to seeing you at a future Thomson Reuters event. If you have any questions about the conference or workshop, or would like to register your interest in attending next year’s event, please contact eventsnz@thomsonreuters.com.
