Our construction team is focussed on providing end-to-end legal support on infrastructure projects – from project structuring, advice on procurement options, financing, tender strategy, contract documentation and negotiation through to contract administration, maintenance issues and dispute resolution.
We have worked with governments, consortia, financiers and subcontractors across the full spectrum of project delivery.
Our experience includes a broad range of project delivery models such as: traditional construction procurement, partnering/alliancing, target price contracts, guaranteed maximum price contracts, design/build, Public Private Partnerships (PPPs), and construction management and other fast-track procurement strategies.
Our construction team has been involved in more than 100 nationally significant infrastructure projects across Australian and in the key areas of health, transport (ports, roads, rail and light rail), mining, general construction, government, PPPs and finance, education (incorporating universities and schools), justice (including prisons), property development, power and water.

This is one of the most significant transport sector projects in Queensland involving complex civil, dredging and reclamation work.
