Queensland’s building and construction industry contributes significantly to the state’s economy. The industry’s reputation and its ongoing growth relies on licensees complying with their legislated obligations. Unlicensed builders, non-conforming building products and defective building work is detrimental to both the industry and Queensland’s property owners.
The Queensland Building and Construction Commission is a regulatory body that provides support to the state’s building industry. It does this by upholding proper building standards and by investigating defective building work. The commission provides four main services for Queensland home owners and contractors:
- licensing services (this includes ensuring licensees maintain minimum financial requirements)
- dispute prevention and resolution services
- home warranty insurance
- information and education.
