  • promote fair, efficient and productive workplace relations in the building and construction industry
  • improve the workplace relations framework under which building and construction activities are performed
  • promote safe practices in the building and construction industry
  • assist industry stakeholders to understand the State of Western Australia's expectations and requirements in relation to Building Contractors seeking to undertake State Building Work
  • promote fair subcontracting practices and timely payment of Subcontractors within the building and construction industry, and
  • establish a compliance framework under which Building Contractors' Code compliance may be recorded for the purposes of future consideration when awarding future State Building Work.
