Building Permit Process

Building Permit Process

These are the steps required for obtaining a building permit:

  • Architectural drawings are updated to meet building permit requirements including a site plan and reflected ceiling plan
  • Client signs off on drawing and scope of works
  • Client to arrange for the owners consent form to be completed and returned to Affordable FItouts (form provided by Affordable Fitouts)
  • Building permit application and supporting documentation is sent to Building Surveyor
  • The building surveyor reviews the application and either issues a building permit or asks for further information or changes to be made
  • Once building permit is issued we can begin construction works

 

The timeframe for obtaining a building permit can vary and is dependant upon the size and complexity of the project.  For smaller projects it would typically be from a couple of days to 1-2 weeks.
