BUILDING CODE OF AUSTRALIA ADVICE
The Building Code of Australia (BCA) forms Volumes 1 & 2 of the National Construction Code. Our experienced and qualified consultants can provide a range of detailed reports on the BCA for all classes of building in all Council areas. These reports may include, but are not limited to BCA Audits, BCA Upgrade Reports, BCA Compliance Reports and Council liaison. Our consultants will assess a development against the requirements of the Code and determine it's compliance with the deemed-to-satisfy provisions of the Code.
BUSHFIRE ASSESSMENT REPORTS
Prior to the issue of a Complying Development Certificate for a bush-fire prone site, a BAL Certificate must be obtained from a BPAD accredited consultant that states that the site is not located in a BAL-40 or Flamezone area. Our Accredited Consultant can issue BAL Certificates that determine the Bushfire Assessment Level and allow for your complying development certificate to proceed.
Our Bushfire Consultants can also provide detailed Bushfire Assessment Reports that may be required for submission to Council with a development application.
Local staff members possess an extensive knowledge of all facets of the building industry. Our consultants can provide you with advice for your development with reference to the conditions of development consent, the Building Code of Australia and any relevant Australian Standards.
