Building a Home in Challenging Times

Building a Home in Challenging Times
08 Jun 2022

There are new resources available to help consumers navigate building delays, cost increases and other challenges.

The WA building industry is currently impacted by an Australia-wide shortage of building materials and skilled workers, which is affecting project timeframes and costs. This is not unique to WA and is happening across the world.  

Building and Energy has produced a guide Building a home in challenging times to help consumers understand the current challenges, why they are happening and the protection laws that are in place to help.

Online information is also available on price increases to home building work contracts and when these are permitted. 

View the guide.
