Commercial Building Approvals

Commercial Building CertifierBA Group building certifiers have expert knowledge of current building legislation and development codes and have extensive experience in all building classes (ie class 2 -9). BA Group can assist you with your next commercial project.

Our previous building certification and consultancy services have included tenancy fit-outs, shopping centres, warehouse development, educational buildings, medical centres, assembly buildings, child care centres, sewerage treatment facilities, residential apartment buildings, townhouse developments, aged care facilities, duplex developments, heritage buildings and office buildings.

A building development approval for building work is required before starting construction on most types of commercial building work. These approvals are also known as building permits or building approvals.

Building certifiers are responsible for assessing whether proposed building work complies with all relevant provisions of the Building Act 1975, Building Code of Australia, Queensland Development Codes and relevant Australian Standards.

Services BA Group can assist you with include Pre-lodgement assessment of preliminary plans for compliance with Building Code, lodgement of council applications (plumbing, concurrence agency referrals), energy efficiency assessments, bushfire assessments, town planning referrals and assessment of fire engineering or alternate building solutions.
