What professional pool builders are asking about

Approvals and pool fence safety - Queensland residential projects

1. Why does logging the owner’s contact details matter?

Builders provide the certifier owner’s details within 10 days of engaging – as per act changes around obligations for builders and certifiers. Check out HIA’s summary for builders here. Building Approvals and Advice have a quick online form to speed project engagement for pool builders, streamline communication and ensure mandatory requirements are met. Download info here.

2. What’s required when infrastructure/ services are on site?

  • You can save time and simplify your pool approval by knowing the requirements of QDC MP 1.4 apply – more in our Build over Asset (BOA) blog summary. If the pipe is less than diameters indicated below, speak with your engineer to see if it may comply with QDC MP 1.4 1.4 - A1 (1)b

- if a sewer pipe diameter is no more than 225mm (and not a pressure pipeline)

- if a stormwater pipe diameter is not more than 375mm (and not a pressure pipeline)
