Firstly, What Is A Construction Certificate (CC)?

The Final Hurdle Before Beginning Construction On Your New Home

Before commencing construction, you must first obtain a construction certificate from your local council or a private certifier. Obtaining a CC is required after receiving approval for your Development Application (DA). Receiving a CC approval confirms that your custom-built home designs align with regulations set by the Building Code Of Australia (BCA).

Who can issue a CC?

Issue by local council or a private certifier

You may acquire your CC by applying through your local council or an accredited certifier. This is where TENNA can help. The team collaborates with a variety of local councils and private certifiers.

Local council or a private certifier?

There are some differences

A local council is typically the same as obtaining a CC through an Accredited Certifier. There are, however, some key distinctions. If you opt for an Accredited Certifier, they can assist you in fulfilling all of the necessary criteria and plans for your CC. Some certifiers are more flexible with established standards, submission requirements and typically respond faster than council representatives.
