Too many times we have people contact us wanting to do a small and large buildings on the “Cheap”. Which also includes not wanting to get a building permit or not understanding what a building permit is.
No matter where you are in Australia the general rule is that any building with a footprint exceeding 10m2 requires a building permit.
What does a Building permit mean to me?
Well, a building permit means many things. It doesn’t only document the type of building being assembled on your land to local council, it also provides a set of regulations that a building needs to comply with in your local area, such as wind, footing requirements and of course fire zones.
A building permit insures that you as an owner builder or a registered builder assemble your building not only to the certified engineering your builder requires, a building permit also stipulates guidelines in regards to plumbing, electrical and probably the most important part of a building permit is safety.
When you approach Bribuild for your next building project one of the first questions we will ask is…… have you spoken to local council or a building surveyor regarding your building permit? And if you havn’t, would you like us to approach the appropriate authority on your behalf.
From years of industry experience, the up front costs of drafting engineering and a building permit, out way the cost of trying to complete a building permit after you have assembled your building without the correct permission.
Feel free to talk with us about building permits.
