Terms of Use in accessing iCIRT star-ratings

The iCIRT product provides an independent assessment of the star-rating outcome of a developer, builder, contractor or other party in accordance with the independent construction industry ratings tool (iCIRT) methodology.

This assessment is performed in accordance with a published Methodology which was developed in close consultation with the public and private sector, based on criteria and key attributes that were recognised to support decision making.

The product provides an overall star rating outcome to signify the likelihood that a builder, developer, contractor, practitioner or consultant was likely to have the capability and willingness to honor commitments related to the design, development and delivery of residential buildings.

The outcome ranges from zero stars (unrated) to five stars in accordance with the methodology. The higher the number of stars the more likely the rated parties' have exhibited characteristics that infer they are willing to honour their commitments, and the lower the number of stars, the more likely they have exhibited higher risk characteristics.
