Building over an Asset (BOA) - does your project include building works or a pool on or near a sewer or stormwater pipe?
“a sewer operated by or for a sewerage service provider
a water main operated by or for a water service provider;
a stormwater drain operated by or for a local government;
a combined sanitary drain.
Note— Relevant infrastructure ceases at the connection point.”
Save time (and keep your certification simple!)
Add detail to plans - pipe/ sewer connections and the distance/ location from work, pipe diameters
Keep the legislation link on your desktop- so you know what's required and when MP1.4 applies
Ensure your pool / building work documentation is in order.
Let BA&A know in initial communication if you require a BOA/ BOS facilitation fee included in your fee proposal.
The build over infrastructure process - building approvals
Your engineer works from the surveyor’s information, looking at
drill down report information
location of assets on site
Title search details and/ or CCTV footage of the asset(s) in question may also be required. Then the engineer signs off regarding QDC MP 1.4, if compliant.
The certifier can facilitate further assessment and lodgement once the engineer’s Form 15 is received.
Each project is unique so times may vary.... allow roughly twenty days for the asset owner/ council to assess the plans.
Clear zone requirements according to QDC MP 1.4.
