A building certifier’s first job is to inspect the building plans and specifications and issue a building permit. Once building commences, they will then inspect the progress at regular intervals.
If the standard of work is satisfactory, the certifier will give the green light for the building to progress to the next stage. If something needs correction, they will work with the developer and builder to address the issue.
Private Certifiers are increasingly used as an alternative to the council building approvals process, which can be lengthy and often involves lots of bureaucratic red tape.
When a property development appoints a Private Certifier, this arrangement cannot be changed unless there are extenuating circumstances, which would then require the Minister’s approval. This has been done in South Australia to protect the buyers for that development.
The Accredited Professionals Scheme for Private Certifiers was introduced in South Australia on 1st April 2019. This Scheme is designed to provide improved reliability, flexibility, and accountability within the development planning system.
This means that the Private Certifier appointed to the METRO425 apartment development holds us to strict standards, ensuring the highest quality build.
If you have any questions at all about the METRO425 build or would like more information about the development, please call Constantine Pappas on 0423 047 020.
