You will now use your plans to get quotes, or proceed as an owner builder (after filling out a form on the internet through the BSA, and undertaking some reading and a questionnaire).
During construction a number of inspections are required. Generally to look at the excavations, the reinforcing steel, the building frame, and a final which ensures there is good fit and finish.
Council or the certifier can perform these inspections, or a qualified engineering consultancy. The certifiers often prefer that complex structural inspections be done by an engineer, however the final must be done by them. We are not that keen on doing inspections, and are a little more expensive than the certifiers, however in the case where it is likely that construction advice is also required, site conditions have changed or there are some questions or changes, then it makes sense to involve us, as the certifiers are not able to significantly alter the structural design. We then issue a construction inspection certificate, the Form 16.
The Certifier will have provided a list of paper work required in addition to the Form 16, such as a termite certificate, or a certificate saying that glass is safe for use in a wet area, etc. Put all this together and they will register your building as fully approved.
