What Is a Construction Certificate?
A construction certificate is needed in Bondi Junction, Australia anytime work is about to commence on a building or anytime a building is about to be erected or changed in any structural way. It must be issued by either an accredited organization or a municipal council before the proposed work can begin.
A request for a construction certificate can be filed simultaneously with a development application (DA), or a development application may be filed first, but the DA must be approved before the certificate will be issued.
This certificate is required for several reasons:
It guarantees that the work being done will meet or exceed the Building Code of Australia, or BCA.
It guarantees that the work being done is the same as the work that was proposed in the initial development application.
It guarantees that any prerequisite requirements, such as safety or security concerns, have been met.
