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 Ipswich, QLD

Ipswich ( (listen)) is a city in South East Queensland, Australia. Situated on the Bremer River, it is approximately 40 kilometres (25 mi) west of the Brisbane central business district. The city is renowned for its architectural, natural and cultural heritage. Ipswich preserves and operates from many of its historical buildings, with more than 6000 heritage-listed sites and over 500 parks. Ipswich was founded in 1827 as a mining settlement. == History == === Early history === Ipswich according to The Queenslander (Brisbane, Thursday 18 January 1934, Page 13) was tribally known as Coodjirar meaning place of the Red-Stemmed Gum Tree in the Yugararpul language. Jagara (also known as Jagera, Yagara, and Yuggara) and Yugarabul (also known as Ugarapul and Yuggerabul) are Australian Aboriginal languages of South-East Queensland. There is some uncertainty over the status of Jagara as a language, dialect or perhaps a group or clan within the local government boundaries of Ipswich City Council, Lockyer Regional Council and the Somerset Regional Council. The languages of Greater Brisbane are related – there is uncertainty over which dialects belong to which language.The Yugarabul language region includes the landscape within the local government boundaries of Brisbane City Council, Ipswich City Council and the Scenic Rim Regional Council.Prior to the arrival of European settlers, what is now called Ipswich was home to many indigenous language groups, including the Warpai tribe, Yuggera and Ugarapul Indigenous Australian groups. The area was first explored by European colonists in 1826, when Captain Patrick Logan, Commandant of the Moreton Bay penal colony, sailed up the Brisbane River and discovered large deposits of limestone and other minerals.

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.
