Building Certifications Perth
Previously, Building Surveyors employed by the local governments were the only ones who were able to access your plans and issue building compliance certifications.
The state government identified that this had been a bottleneck in the system for some time so they studied what was happening in other states and came back with the model we use today.
The current practices were put in place to relieve the pressure and responsibilities of the local Councils in having to assess plans for compliance with the BCA (Building Code of Australia) and Australian Standards.
Clients are now able to engage KOMPLETT to provide you with an independent registered assessment of the plans and prepare the CDC.
