You will require this registration if you intend to operate as a Building Surveyor. Building Surveyors make sure that construction projects meet building regulations. They assess design documentation for compliance, give directions and issue building and occupancy permits, notices and orders. Building Surveyors inspect buildings during construction to check that the building is being constructed in accordance with the approved plans and according to regulations and standards.
There are two classes of Building Surveyor registration:
- Unlimited: a Building Surveyor (unlimited) has an unrestricted scope of work.
- Limited: a Building Surveyor (limited) has a restricted scope of work and is able to certify buildings up to three storeys and with a maximum floor area of 2000 square metres.
