Congratulations Kurt Christensen!

On 10 October 2016, our Principal Kurt Christensen was admitted as a lawyer in the QLD Supreme Court.  Kurt comes to LEAD Consultants with 3 years pre-admission experience working for some of Sydney’s leading construction law firms. This legal experience, combined with Kurt’s earlier background of Project Engineering with Top-Tier Contractors, is a perfect combination for a Project Manager and Superintendent whom not only has specialist contract knowledge, but the practical building expertise to back it up. His experience in dealing with, and more importantly avoiding, disputes is critical for our client’s reputation, corporate image and overall success.

We at LEAD Consultants pride ourselves in our ability to administer construction contracts as intended, especially when appointed as Superintendent. The Superintendent's role is a complex one that requires a sound understanding of contractual and other legal obligations. It requires professional judgment, technical skill, and an ability to manage the competing interests of those parties affected by the Superintendent's decisions and directions. For that reason, the Queensland Government has dictated that in order to act as Superintendent, a person must be licenced under the QBCC Act. Unlike many other rogue persons operating as ‘Superintendent’s, both LEAD Consultants and its Senior Project Managers individually carry the necessary licences.

In circumstances where the Superintendent acts as agent for you, LEAD Consultants will act in your best interests and in accordance with the contractual obligations. LEAD Consultants is your representative in administering and enforcing the contract terms and conditions and it is our good Superintendency that will avoid costly legal traps and disputes.
