Brisbane- here to help for your building approvals

Updated: Mar 22

Getting through together...with a few COVID-19 adjustments!

Our team is working hard to keep your certification rolling. Thanks for your remote and digital communication from 23 March so we can maintain our quick turnarounds.

Because of our cloud based system and existing technology our service can continue... we are working remotely, the office is open and certifiers are out on the road.

What about our inspections?

Site inspections are going ahead if possible-

with social distancing and sanitiser on hand!

Clients / homeowners -we'll be following QLD health advice as the situation emerges - we'll ensure everyone's safe with the 4m2 personal space requirements.

Face to face meetings will go digital or distanced for's essential that clients/ occupants/ homeowners inform us if there are changes to self- isolation status or if you become unwell (and we'll do the same!)

The BA&A service you're used to, continued as usual

  • Call us from 8am – 4pm weekdays or email [email protected] anytime

  • Quotes – please sign/ pay online using click through link on fee proposal

  • Plan / document lodgement (online only thanks)- uploads to portal, email unaffected

  • Certifier’s assessment - continue

  • Requests for Information (RFIs) - continue

  • Projects finalised - Form 21s and Form 17s ready to roll and digitally delivered!

Like most, our team is now mostly working remotely, so thanks for using email to provide documents and a phone call / email to clarify anything, rather than dropping in.

Inspections as usual, especially for underpinning, re roofing, carport and demolition projects. Where possible, we request that no other people are on site when we are undertaking the inspection. Residential and pool builders, we’re managing risks to ensure we meet health and safety requirements.

  • Courtesy touch base with clients / owners a day prior to the requested booked inspection

  • We will help owners /occupants, clients or our BA&A team members reschedule the inspection as suits all parties, if they have any concerns regarding COVID-19 / their own health status.

If clients, owners or occupants of the building are still willing for the certifier attend site, we will be kindly requesting that all parties “do the five' and respect distance guidelines.

Need digital communication in lieu of a face to face meeting we had planned? Thanks for letting us know! Because our technology is set up and ready we look forward to arranging a call/ video meeting.

We wish all our clients all the very best through this challenging time. If there are changes to project status or your health, thanks for keeping us updated. We value open communication also will be in touch should anything change.
