“Understand How The COVID-19 (Temporary Measures) Act 2020 Can Help the Construction Industry Obtain Temporary Relief during the COVID-19 Pandemic”
Many construction companies have been severely disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic and cannot carry out their construction obligations. These include suppliers that cannot obtain supplies from foreign countries due to border and movement restriction, or construction companies that cannot carry out any work when large numbers of foreign workers are placed on mandatory stay-home notices.
Due to the severe disruption, Parliament enacted the COVID-19 (Temporary Measures) Act 2020 to provide temporary relief for construction companies unable to carry out their contractual obligations due to COVID-19, starting from 1 February 2020.
The types of Temporary Reliefs provided for construction companies include:
- Protection from court / arbitration proceedings
- Enforcement of court judgments / arbitration awards / adjudication determinations
-Winding up / bankruptcy
-Limitation in calling performance bonds
-Defences to breach of contract
In order to obtain the Temporary Reliefs, parties must file and serve the Temporary Relief Notification on all other parties to the contract.
Parties that receive the Temporary Relief Notification will also be able to contest it by filing for an Assessor’s Determination.
As the Temporary Relief period expires 19 October 2020, parties who have been unable to perform their contractual obligations due to COVID-19 should apply for the Temporary Reliefs soon.
