Changes to Building Work

Changes to Building Work

Friday, March 02, 2012

An important change to the way we build our houses is the introduction of “Restricted Building Work” on 1  March 2012 - this is residential design and the construction work that is critical to the building and must therefore only be carried out or supervised by a recognised competent person – a Licensed Building Practitioner.


To find out more on how these changes will affect you as the building owner click on the link

Restricted Building Work seeks to do two things:
1. Ensure that the critical design and building work is carried out or supervised by competent persons
2. Ensure that those persons can be held to account if this work ends up being not up to standard.
