Dear Members

Please click on the image below to access a communique which was just released by Pearl Pugin - Secretary of the BIBC, which covers a practical solution for all BIBC compliant companies who face challenges with the payment of their staff over the lockdown period.

We have also drafted the procedures to follow as it pertains to the claims for a revision to the date of Practical Completion in terms of JBCC Contract documents as a result of COVID-19 which has given rise to a force majeure circumstance.

We also received a formal communication from IOPSA and PIRB regarding the specific guidelines for our plumbing contractor members which we include below.

We trust that these positive developments will be well received by our members and that it will assist in these trying times.

Finally, we will continue to provide assistance to our members as and when required, but wish to advise that our MBA offices in Belmont Square will be closed until 17 April 2020 for the sale of contract documents.

Wishing you, your families and employees all the very best in the coming weeks.

Kind regards,
Allen Bodill
Executive Director
