In Western Australia, the Building Approvals process is legislated under the Building Act (2011) that in 2012 began to allow for private certification of Building Surveying services.
We are also here to help with design consultation, advice and training including Building Code interpretations and technical advice notes. Our Building Surveyors have in-depth knowledge of Local Government approvals processes and can offer guidance on statutory requirements and obligations.
Structerre offers a Building Surveying Service that can assist with the following-
- New Building Work
Provision of a Certificate of Design Compliance (CDC) certifying that the proposed work meets all applicable building standards ensuring when you lodge for a Building Permit with a Local Authority your permit can be issued in the shortest possible timeframes
- Existing Buildings
Provision of a Certificate of Building Compliance (CBC) certifying that existing buildings seeking retrospective approval meet the required Building Standards and are ready to be submitted to a Local Authority so that a Building Approval Certificate (BAC) can be issued.
