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).

  • 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.

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.

In the 2021 census, Thornlands had a population of 19,263 people.== Geography == Thornlands is located approximately 32 kilometres (20 mi) by road south-east Brisbane, the capital of the Queensland.Major access to Thornlands is provided by Boundary Road, Cleveland-Redland Bay Road, or Wellington Street.It is predominantly used for residential purposes, but some parts in the south of the locality are still used for farming.The area is now primarily suburban residences, with the southern parts rural residences, comprising larger land blocks. The population is growing rapidly due to new housing developments.== History == Thornlands began as part of the area then encompassed by Cleveland, and was leased (along with most of the land between Ormiston and the Logan River), to Joseph Clarke. He relinquished his lease in 1858, allowing small farmers to settle in the area.The area took the name Thornlands after George Thorn, a major landholder in the area, whose lands were subdivided around 1900. The area was settled, like the surrounding suburbs, primarily by farmers, mostly growing fruit such as citrus, bananas and mangoes. Thornlands State School opened on 1 November 1910 with 14 students under teacher Miss M. Fielding.Redland District Special School opened on 15 November 1975.The Nazarene Bible College was established on an 18-acre (7.3 ha) site by the Church of the Nazarene. It opened on 8 March 1976 with eight students with a focus on training for the ministry of the church. The college had originally commenced operation in 1953 in Thornleigh, Sydney, but was unable to afford the cost of necessary renovations to that site, so the college decided to relocate to Thornlands.

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.
