What is a building certification?

In Queensland, it is a legal requirement to assess buildings and structures against the Building Assessment Regulations.
These provisions include:

  • The Australian Building Code (Volumes 1 and 2 of the National Building Code).
  • Queensland Development Code.
  • Various other Queensland regulations.

Obtaining a building certification from a private certifier confirms that your building is compliant with local and state regulations. This also applies to future developments or subdivisions.

Michael and Karlie run a very professional service, that is well priced, comprehensive and thorough. It is a pleasure to deal with them and the team. Michael has an amazing depth of knowledge regarding certification, highly experienced in all levels of building.
I very recently used the services of A1 Certifier to help me navigate the [at times] difficult world of local government approvals. Michael and his team were excellent to deal with, very knowledgeable - providing guidance at every step and got the desired result without issue. I absolutely recommend the service that Michael and his team provide and will utilize their service again.

I approached Michael and the team at A1 to complete a building certification on a shed after another certifier went broke and didn’t complete the process. What I thought was going to be a stressful process was taken care of by A1, and it was dealt with in a timely and stress free manner. Would highly recommend their services

We have been dealing with Michael Van Dyck and A1 Certifiers for the past 4 years. Over that time we have come to rely on their professional services for early development advice, Building approvals, council enquires, relaxation submissions and approvals. A1 certifiers have completed in excess of 100 building approval for our residential and community construction business. We have found that Michael Van Dyck is extremely well versed and always up to date on any legislative and regulatory authority requirements. I have used several certifiers in the past but non have come close to the service I receive from A1 Certifiers. I highly recommend that if you are looking for a private certifier then you can rest assured that Michael and A1 certifiers will provide you a professional service and give you piece of mind that every I will be dotted and every T will be crossed.

Building permits require an assessment against the Australian Building Code (Volume 1 and 2 of the National Building Code) and the Queensland Building and Plumbing Codes. These guidelines and regulations address, among other things, whether the building is soundly designed and constructed and safe to live in.

City Council approval may necessary to ensure the public’s safety and the environment. For example, a large deck can cause soil erosion or encroach on the land. Therefore, council approval is needed to build a deck over a certain size in most local council areas in Qld.

We are one of the most affordable building certifiers in Queensland. Prices vary depending on the type and scope of project work and the different submission fees that are required.
