BCRP Overview

The building contract review program (BCRP) is designed to help builders take on new or larger, more complex projects through mentored project management by a BCRP service provider. 

If you’re a residential builder, you may be required to participate in the BCRP as a condition of obtaining eligibility with icare HBCF.

 

If you’ve already been assessed as eligible but you would like to change your eligibility profile, the BCRP may help you develop the skills and experience required to take on larger and more complex residential building projects.

 

The BCRP assists new entrants to the building industry, as well as existing small to medium builders without demonstrated experience for proposed projects.

BCRP Services

As a BCRP Service Provider, Building Contract Partners is responsible for reviewing your ability to quote and deliver a particular type of project. The services involved in the BCR Program include: 

Component 1 & 2

On registration of a new job, Building Contract Partners will request a list of documents relating to your project. These documents will be reviewed including the contract documents for the project to ensure that you provide a detailed budget that includes a gross margin that is reasonable for the project type, size, value and other project requirements. 

 

Component 3

Based on the requirements of the job, as identified in the documents provided, Building Contract Partners will determine a schedule of performance reviews, including site inspections, to ensure your supervision and contract administration is appropriate. 

 

Component 4

During the construction process, Building Contract Partners will make sure the project is running to budget and contracted completion date through regular progress checks and performance reviews. A performance report will be submitted to Corporate Scorecard, the Eligibility Risk Manager, and yourself after each performance review. 

 

Component 5

On completion of the project, Building Contract Partners will prepare a final report for Corporate Scorecard, the Eligibility Risk Manager, and yourself which confirms that all performance reviews have been completed, identifys any unresolved concerns and comments on your progression/competence in relation to the elements of the BCRP.  

Please note that it is not the role of Building Contract Partners as a BCRP Service Provider to ensure that you’re compliant with building standards however, copies of certifications may be requested as part of our performance review process.
