Suppliers can sometimes feel powerless as small players in the midst of a larger job. Without being present on the job site, suppliers often do not consider themselves to be fully part of the project, and are unaware of the various protections available to them.
In the Construction Act, the legislature has provided powerful tools to any business providing supplies to a construction project. These tools include strict rules addressing prompt payment, the ability to lien property, and rapid dispute resolution. To gain these benefits, however, knowing the rules and properly following the strict timelines is crucial.
When a supplier finds itself feeling outmatched, timely and accurate legal advice can help to turn the tables. Our experienced team is available to assist suppliers in taking advantage of the various tools designed to empower smaller players in the construction industry.
