The Government lets you choose your building surveyor …….choose wisely
Construction approval can involve two permits; the first for the overall plan and the second for the building itself.
Planning Permits allow Councils to control the way the land in their municipality is utilised.
Building Permits ensure that all structures meet minimum quality and safety standards.
In 1994, Victoria streamlined the building approvals process by licensing private building surveyors to issue building permits.
The legislation introduced a strict code of conduct. Private surveyors have to stay fully up to date with every piece of building legislation, every regulation and every guideline.
This knowledge and experience is actually a huge benefit for anyone undertaking a building project. The building surveyor is their partner in the process and the building permit is a key step toward a more durable, safe and efficient building.
Nepean Building Permits have always seen their role in that light. They were one of the first to be registered back in 1994 and have worked on over 34,000 projects since then.
