Construction site management
The safety of the community and protection of our unique environment are of the utmost importance. If you need advice, or see a building site with safety issues, please contact us.
Please note: Last inspections for 2022 will be Thursday 22 December. Our office will be closed from midday Friday 23 December 2022 and re-opening Tuesday 3 January 2022. We wish everyone a safe and Merry Xmas.
Building inspections are required at key stages during the development and are mandatory under current legislation.
Blue Mountains Building Certifiers will provide a schedule of inspections required for your development, with the Construction Certificate.
It is important not to miss any mandatory inspections, as this can prevent the issue of an Occupation Certificate.
Request a building inspection
Call our friendly staff on (02) 4780 5422 during business hours. You will need to allow at least 24 hours notice.
Before site works start
At least two days before commencing works on site you need to submit a Notice of Commencement of building works. This can be found with your inspection schedule.
Various matters are required to be addressed prior to commencement. Factor these into your project timeline so that the first inspection is not delayed.
This may include:
Inspection results are generated and emailed direct to the builder following the inspection.
Final inspection and Occupation Certificate
Before booking your final inspection make sure all required documentation has been provided. At the final inspection, the Certifier will ensure the building work complies with the codes and standards and that all conditions of the development consent are met. They will also check all the documentation has been received.
After a satisfactory final inspection you may apply online for an Occupation Certificate via the NSW Planning Portal.
Guidelines on how to apply for an Occupation Certificate are available on the NSW Planning Portal site.
