Victoria Stage 4 Construction Restrictions
Following AGDA submission to the Industry Coordination Centre there has been continuing work with government and industry counterparts (particularly by MBA and HIA) to address member and construction industry concerns relating to the current restrictions, that we believe can be safely addressed. Some of these concerns relate to bottlenecks in the small-scale residential sector, which we have been advised have been reduced from 1st September.
The changes will make it more practical to start and finish projects and discussions continue with government as they plan for the roadmap to be announced on Sunday.
The changes are understood to have been made to the FAQs available on the Business Victoria website and advice has been received that the intent of these changes is as follows:
For small-scale construction:
· For work carried out prior to the completion of Base Stage (as defined in the Domestic Building Contracts Act), workers will no longer be limited to 3 sites per week;
· For work carried out after the completion of the fixing stage (as defined in the Domestic Building Contracts Act), workers will no longer be limited to 3 sites per week;
· In each of the above scenarios, workers will still be limited in accordance with the Workplace Directions clause relating to the movement of workers (‘Reducing work across multiple sites’, clause 7(17-20)). This means that employers must limit the movement of workers as much as it is reasonably practicable to do so;
Garage Door Installation is understood to be now included as Specialist Contractor status.
