The Building Contract Review Program (BCRP) aims to assist new entrants to the building industry, as well as existing small to medium builders without demonstrated experience for proposed projects, to have an opportunity of obtaining experience.
The program is intended to review the competence of the builder to price and manage a project rather than ensuring compliance with building standards.
The BCRP is intended to be a transition phase and builders can apply in future to have the condition removed. It is expected that a new builder will participate at least three times in the BCRP before being permitted to contract for similar projects without the program.
The reports issued by the BCRP service providers will be used during all Eligibility reviews. The participating builder will be provided with a copy of all BCRP final reports.
The BCRP will be used in the following instances (where all other relevant financial and non-financial considerations are satisfactory):
