COVID-19 response



Updated 21st September 2021 7.45am

Inline with the state government media release, the construction industry will close for two weeks from 11.59pm Monday 20 September 2021.

All construction projects in metropolitan Melbourne, City of Ballarat, City of Greater Geelong, Surf Coast Shire and Mitchell Shire will be closed, with a strictly limited exemption for workers to attend the sites to respond to an emergency or perform urgent and essential work to protect health and safety.


An amnesty will be put in place so that a limited number of workers can attend construction sites in order to shut them down safely. All government construction projects in metropolitan Melbourne and relevant LGAs will be closed, with no new work to be completed – other than work required to make the site safe and secure.

During this time, BINQ will continue to manufacture goods but any site works that fall within these regions will be limited to emergency or essential work to protect health and safety.

If your site falls within these areas and you believe requires emergency or essential work, you'll be required to provide a request in writing detailing the emergency or essential work that is required.

We thank you for your understanding during this difficult time.
