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.

A1 Certifiers, the professional private building certifier Qld, offers the highest level of service. Our experienced construction industry professionals can certify your project through all construction phases to ensure a smooth process.

Unmatched customer service! We were late to submit our request for building approval which was going to cause major disruption to everyone involved in our pool installation. A1 showed utmost professionalism and understanding of our situation and pulled out all stops to get our assessment done in the fastest time possible! We can’t thank you enough.

About Gold Coast, QLD

The Gold Coast is a coastal city and a region in the state of Queensland, Australia, approximately 66 kilometres (41 mi) south-southeast of the centre of the state capital Brisbane. With a population over 600,000, the Gold Coast is the sixth-largest city in Australia, the nation's largest non-capital city, and Queensland's second-largest city after Brisbane. The city's Central Business District is located roughly in the centre of the Gold Coast in the suburb of Southport, with the suburb holding more corporate office space than anywhere else in the city. The urban area of the Gold Coast is concentrated along the coast sprawling almost 60 kilometers, joining up with the Greater Brisbane Metropolitan Area to the north and to the state border with New South Wales to the south.Prior to European settlement the area was occupied by the Yugambeh people. The demonym for the Gold Coast is Gold Coaster. The Gold Coast is a major tourist destination with a sunny, subtropical climate and has become widely known for its world-class surfing beaches, high-rise dominated skyline, theme parks, nightlife, and rainforest hinterland. The city is part of the nation's entertainment industry with television productions and a major film industry. == History == The Gold Coast is the ancestral home of a number of Indigenous clans of the Yugambeh people, including the Kombumerri, Mununjali, and Wangerriburra clans. Europeans arrived in 1823 when explorer John Oxley landed at Mermaid Beach. The hinterland's red cedar supply attracted people to the area in the mid-19th century.

FAQ

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.
