If you have completed the Development Application (DA) Process through your Local Council and have received an Approved Development Consent, is it a requirement to obtain a Construction Certificate before construction commences.

This ensures the Plans and Specifications are compliant with the National Construction Code (Building Code of Australia), and that all relevant Development Consent conditions are met.

Construction Certificate (CC) Approvals with Buildcert:

  • Buildcert can approve a CC quickly, assuming that all the conditions in the Development Application (DA) are met, and all documentation is available
  • If documentation is outstanding after the assessment is carried out, our Accredited Building Certifiers will issue a ‘Request for Information’ with a checklist.
  • Buildcert is Registered to issue Construction Certificates for all classes and types of Buildings (unrestricted), including projects with Performance Solutions.
  • Buildcert coordinates your application through NSW Planning Portal on your behalf.
  • Mandatory inspections can be booked 2 working days after your Construction Certificate has been issued, and any “Prior to commencement” items are provided.
