Building approval involves an assessment of a proposed use or development against the Building Code of Australia, and considers issues such as:

  • Is the building soundly constructed?
  • Have adequate fire protection measures been installed?
  • Is the building capable of receiving adequate levels of light and ventilation?
  • Are the building’s features safe for users? 

The process may involve a series of inspections at various stages of construction of a building to ensure that these issues have been addressed.

We do not survey building plans or provide an inspection service but you can find private building surveyors listed in the Yellow Pages or online.
