Managing home building work for homeowners

These guidelines provide information to help homeowners when working with a builder or a tradesperson.

These guidelines provide information to help homeowners when working with a builder or a tradesperson. This can be whether they are building a new home or when renovating or repairing a home during COVID-19 restrictions and lockdowns.

Your builder or trade contractor is showing that they’re committed to making safety the highest priority for their workers, clients and the public, by providing this factsheet and the HIA Making space on site guidelines for your project.

The guidelines set out how your builder can meet the Government’s separation and distancing requirements.
