What does a certifier actually do?

Updated: Mar 3

Q&A with King Builders


The certifier supports your builders, designers, architects and their clients to ensure safety and compliance from the initial stages of each project.


Construction professionals rely on their certifier to help to navigate Queensland’s regulations. This ensures each project complies with Australian Standards and local, state and national regulations.


At BA&A we are lucky to work with Brisbane’s best residential builders, such as King Builders. Recently, our Director Michael made his video debut on King Builders TV (while sporting a mo in support of the Movember initiative!)


Check out the video below for an outline of:

  • Common jargon - be in the know when discussing your project

  • The certifier's role

  • Timelines for residential building approvals

Check out King Builders blog for more resources.


BA&A is committed to teamwork to help simplify certification for residential projects.


The approvals process, though unique for each project, usually reflects the following stages (for demolition permits, the process is slightly different).

Projects can be complex. Save time and avoid frustration by communicating with your builder, designer, architect and certifier early in the process.


To ask questions specific to the approvals for your project, please get in touch.
