Construction Certificate Applications & Approvals

SureScope Building Certifiers’ expert team of Grade 1 Accredited Consultants offer professional construction certification solutions in Newcastle.

Once you’ve received consent from the council on your development application, the next phase is obtaining a construction certificate so construction can get underway.

Construction certificate vs CDC

A complying development certificate is an alternative to a development application and is considered a fast-tracked approval process for straightforward developments.

A construction certificate confirms that a building plan is consistent with development consent, complies with relevant conditions for development consent and complies with the Building Code of Australia (BCA).

Construction certificates and complying development certificates must be obtained prior to commencement of construction.

If you don’t have either a construction certificate or a complying certificate your building work will be deemed unauthorised. This will prevent you from obtaining an occupation certificate upon completion of the constriction work.
