BCA Design Advice
MBC offers design advice to clients looking to ensure their development is compliant with Building Code of Australia and respective legislation. Our Accredited Building Certifiers often consult to organisations in the design phase, interpreting complex legislation with knowledge based on decades of industry experience. A deep understanding of compliance and regulatory challenges in the planning and design phase can deliver significant time and cost savings for your development.
We provide a comprehensive analysis of your completed design to ensure compliance with the Building Code of Australia and applicable legislation. This is critical to ensuring the development is on the right path as early as possible. The right advice early in the process will make sure there are no nasty surprises, particularly when time is critical to a development’s success.
BCA Audit (Purchaser & Vendor)
Prior to purchasing a building, it’s recommended that you conduct a BCA Audit to ensure that the property is compliant with the most recent provisions of the Building Code of Australia. This is particularly relevant for older commercial buildings, which may not be compliant with current standards.
Our team of Accredited Building Certifiers will conduct a site audit of the building and provide a comprehensive report, which details inconsistencies with current standards.
BCA Capability Statements
MBC provides BCA Capability Statements for proposed developments, which are often used as part of a Development Application submission. The capability statement assures the Council or relevant Consent Authority that the building is capable of compliance with the provisions outlined in the Building Code of Australia and respective legislation.
Fire Safety & Upgrade Reports
Councils have the authority to order the fire safety upgrade of a building so it meets minimum fire safety standards, either through random fire safety audit inspections or when a Development Application is submitted to Council.
To ensure your building meets all the provisions set out within the Building Code of Australia, we can conduct a Fire Safety Report with recommendations on works required.
Performance Solution Assessments
MBC can consult on your proposed project and provide advice on performance solutions that will help you achieve compliance with the performance requirements within the Building Code of Australia. A performance approach provides designers with greater flexibility, while upholding community expectations and occupant safety.
