Benefits of our certification services
Designing the floor plans for a beautiful new house is just one part of the journey towards building a custom home. There are many certification requirements which need to be arranged and finalised before construction can even start.
Certification requirements for new homes branch across a diverse range of expertise, from acoustic engineering to bushfire attack ratings to energy efficiency ratings. Unfortunately, not all home builders have an in-depth knowledge of every single certification area and sometimes mistakes are made due to oversights.
As a home buyer, you naturally want to avoid any costly fixes needing to be made to your new house if certification issues are ever raised with governing bodies such as local councils or building authorities (e.g the QBCC).
Some home buyers opt to deal with certifiers directly in order to avoid any mistakes being made by their builder, yet this approach can be extremely time consuming and requires an understanding of the processes involved to ensure nothing slips through the cracks.
So that you can have complete and total confidence that your new custom home won’t be subject to any certification issues, the team at Design 360 will guide you through the whole certification process.
We will work on your behalf with relevant consultants who will ensure that your finished home achieves all required certifications. Our team is highly experienced with every aspect of certification – whether your build needs are straightforward or complex in nature due to the specifics of the land you plan to build on.
A key part of our approach to guaranteeing certification for your new home is physically meeting with you on your block of land, or the land you are thinking of purchasing, so that we can inspect it in detail. This inspection allows us to identify any potential certification requirements before our designers ever put pen to paper.
Our consultants know what to look for in terms of certification when inspecting a block of land – whether it be the presence of protected koala trees, possible flood zones or the best orientation for minimising energy consumption. By identifying these factors from the outset, our designers are able to design your home to meet every certification requirement in the most efficient way possible.
Once we have ensured certification for your home plans, we can point you in the direction of a builder, or you can engage a builder that you already have appointed.
