Collection: Building Approvals for your Project

 The STRAIGHT talk on Building Approvals

Many customers have told us over the years that every different company who quoted their project had a different answer for the building approvals!!

Scroll down to view our extensive range of pre priced options ready to install 

Only private certifiers and council themselves can approve a building project.

Builders are not allowed to have a financial interest in the company doing the approvals for obvious reasons. 

As a builder we would engage a private certifier on your behalf (they work for you not us) and then we would lodge the correct engineering, plans and certificates to secure the permits required to build. A standard building approval should take 1- 2 weeks to have stamped and returned. Our cost and service includes the preparation and drafting of your structures plans and site plan. 

Most carports at the front of the house require a Boundary relaxation or Siting Variation. This process slows the approval down as only the council themselves can approve this part of the application. So why would you need a relaxation for the approvals? because council have rules about aesthetics and infringing on your neighbours property. 

The triple whammy is also having a "service" line under or in the area of your proposed structure. If that's the case you will also need a permit to build over and this requires some specific engineering and process.  

Not that we are listing this to scare you off. The fact is none of these things should stop you form enjoying the lifestyle you choose. Your home is your castle. We want to help you achieve your dream living space. 

True story.... 

"Gavin from Tingalpa" recently had a new 6 x 6 COLORBOND Carport installed at the front of his house by Queensland Home Improvements.

The structure required all of the following permits.

1. A Standard building permit 

2, A Boundary relaxation 

3. A Build over sewer permit. 

The process took 6 weeks to get approved and we had the Carport on site and built 3 weeks after. 

Total process from signed contract to completion was 9 weeks total. 

Its not all doom and gloom. It can be realistic and progress will be achieved if you trust professionals to do the job. 

We encourage all of our clients to secure a site visit with 1 of our team, confirm your dimensions and get accurate and honest answers on the approvals.

We will get your project approved - Guaranteed. 

Standard building permits and relaxation costs for all South East QLD councils are listed here. 

PRO TIP  - Keep in mind when comparing Building Approval costs that some companies hide the Building Approvals cost in the supply and install price of the structures , thus making it look cheaper but you are still paying for it!

<p><strong>The straight talk on Building Approvals&nbsp;</strong></p> <p>It is a legislative requirement in Queensland that any structure larger than 10m2 and higher than 2400mm secure a building approval. This also includes if you are upgrading a structure such as a replacing the roof on a deck.</p> <p>But in all honesty the whole approvals process over the years has become a complicated and troublesome mess layered in regulations and cost. Councils in Queensland have added boundary and setback rules as well as build over services costs for things like sewer and storm water lines.&nbsp;</p> <p>All of this adds to the cost and slows down the process.</p>
