Residential building certification

Whether it be a new residential build, small scale home renovation, or a large structure like a shed or carport, in most cases, there will be local council and state government imposed inspections, reports, certificates and protocols. These need to be submitted, authorised and actioned before and during the project.

These specifications and processes can be confusing even for seasoned building professionals, and losing track or being misinformed about the procedures can lead to frustrating delays and financial blowouts on your building project.

The team here at the Building Certification Group have decades of combined experience in all aspects of the Queensland building certification process. They can help you carry out fluid and timely approvals.

Two main subclasses need to be considered when applying for domestic building certification. The specification of these subclasses is as follows.

Class 10: Non-habitable building or structure

A class 10 dwelling refers to a utility or facility that is not designed as a dwelling, such as:

The types of certificates and approvals required can vary depending on a structure’s size, its intended use and other factors.

Class one: Single dwelling (detached or attached)

A class one dwelling refers to:

  • New builds and demolitions
  • Extensions
  • Additions
  • Alterations
  • Renovations

You will need to submit your project plans for certification before any work can begin on your building construction or demolition.
