Building Surveyors

Although listed as consultants building surveyors hold a very important role as a statutory authority within the building approval process. Before any plans can be lodged with council, who are the permit authority, for a building approval they must first be assessed and certified by an accredited building surveyor.

Most building designers and architects work with a small selection of building surveyors. This provides better consistency and familiarity over a number of projects as each consultant understands the other better.

Building surveyors, as a statutory authority, assess the plans against the relevant building codes and state authority requirements once working drawings are completed.

Once they are satisfied with the documentation presented they issue a ‘Certificate of Likely Compliance’ which form part of all the documentation required when lodging plans with council.

Building surveyors are considered consultants when engaged as a pert of the ‘design team’ providing assistance when navigating the building act and building code of Australia.This consultant Building surveyor, however can not also act as the statutory authority for the same project. Another Building surveyor must be engaged to fulfill this role.

Building surveyors provide other services as well:

  • Assessing existing and illegal works (works carried out without approval) and providing council with a ‘Certificate of Substantial Compliance’.
  • Risk identification, assessment and reports.
  • Compliance and due-diligence reports for existing buildings.
  • Maintenance of Essential Services inspections, documentation, reports and plans.
  • Fire safety and insurance inspections and reports.
  • Disability (Access to Premises – Buildings) Standards 2010 compliance advice and assistance.
  • Dispute resolution; and Information and training for building industry practitioners.
