Whose Initiative was the iCIRT Program?2023-11-21T10:52:19+11:00

Created by Equifax, iCIRT is an Independent Construction Industry Rating Tool to assess development and construction professionals and their projects.

The digital rating tool is a new initiative driven by the NSW Building Commissioner to improve transparency within the building industry. The improved visibility forms part of the NSW Governments multi-pillar reform program to restore confidence in the building industry.

How Does ICIRT work?2023-11-27T10:19:27+11:00

iCIRT gives development and construction professionals a rating between zero and five stars to help identify building professionals with a proven track record. Building professionals undergo an independent rigorous review process that analyses the company’s data along with the quality of their developments across six core categories:

  1. Character
  2. Capability
  3. Conduct
  4. Capacity
  5. Capital
  6. Counterparties

Information from a company is gathered from thousands of data points and then reviewed across these six categories to form an iCIRT rating.

“A robust data-driven assessment connects the dots within ownership structures, associated parties and key trading partners, leveraging a wide range of commercial, financial, legal, regulatory, government and other data sources” according to Equifax.

Alongside the building professional’s iCIRT rating will be a gold, silver or bronze star indicator. This indicates the degree of information the developer or construction professional provided to Equifax. Limited consent will be flagged as ‘Bronze’, while full consent will be ‘Gold’.

Infinity Constructions recently received a 4-star Gold iCIRT rating from Equifax.

A rating of 4 stars is defined by Equifax as being “Gold Standard where our clients can have high confidence of a reliable outcome with a low level of risk”.

For our clients outside of NSW, this rating is of equal significance in your State as it indicates the strength and stability of Infinity no matter where we build.
