AGS delivers a fully-integrated construction law service. We provide commercially and operationally-focussed legal support across the full range of construction activities from fit-out and refurbishment through to major developments and building projects. This is complemented by ancillary advice and document services for design, project management, quantity surveying and other construction consultancies, together with advice on market approaches and procurement options including tendering. Our through-life services include contract management and project-completion advice and dispute resolution.

Our service is holistic and seamlessly incorporates particular requirements for Commonwealth agencies and bodies such as Public Works Committee approval, Commonwealth Procurement Rules, the National Code of Practice for the Building and Construction Industry, the OHS Accreditation Scheme, work health and safety, as well as security of payments, heritage and environmental considerations. Our focus is on achieving successful outcomes – including helping you to manage risk and cost.
