    Upcoming events!



    1. Getting Contractors Future Fit

    Contractors are facing an ever-changing regulatory and commercial world.

    On 6 June 2019 we will give you the heads up on what is on the horizon and the gear to get you "future fit".

    Technology is set to disrupt Australia's construction industry and those contractors who are ready will finish first. Being "future fit" is about more than just amending your contracts to keep up with the changes in the law it's about reforming your practices so you are out in front, not just keeping pace.

    We will take a good look at how the changes introduced by BIFA are progressing including:

  • 1.exactly what has really changed;
  • 2.how the changes will continue to impact the commercial decisions you make;
  • 3.who in your business needs to be more alert; and
  • 4.the new tools you need to last the distance.
  • We take a look at the big picture. Not just the edges.

    Security of Payment is a special area of focus for the Helix team with offence and defence covered through the expertise of the man who helped “write the book” on BCIPA and was the former adjudication registrar together with a team of lawyers with over a decade of runs on the board in this area.

    As with all the events in our innovation series you will hear from the disruptors in the construction industry about new products and ideas for building a better industry.

    2019 is shaping up as a huge year for innovation in the construction industry. At Helix Legal we have had the pleasure of meeting and working with the new thinkers in the industry and on 29 August 2019 we want to introduce you.

    3. Construction Disruptors of 2019


    On 31 October 2019 we are having a celebration to showcase all of the amazing talent in the construction industry to close out the Helix Innovation Series for 2019.

    Come along to put your finger on the pulse of what the next wave of innovation will be.

  • In 2017, two 3D-Printed concrete bridges were constructed in Spain and in the Netherlands respectively;
  • In 2018, Daqri released the ‘Smart Helmet’, a hard hat fitted with augmented reality features that allow wearers to superimpose information, drawings and other data over the real world they see through the device’s display system; and
  • In 2019, the possibility of blockchain technology being utilised in construction contracts is likely to be explored in an aim to increase transparency in the project.
