Important message to contractors
with Certified Builders President
If you're in the trade or you've got what it takes, you'll be aware of the new licensing laws that come into force March 1 for residential construction.
What you might not realise is that it effects more than the trades required to obtain a licence which are design, carpentry, external plastering, brick and block, roofing and foundation. Licensing hinges around restricted building work which is broken into two components. Any elements that resist vertical and horizontal loadings, and elements that manage air bourn moisture.
This scope now encompasses many trades; if you are involved with any of the following you maybe within the interpretation of restricted building work and now have certain obligations. Get it wrong and you could be fined up to $20,000 (including, but not limited to).
Design, carpentry, engineer, critical surveying, project management (supervision), brick or block work, pile driving, external cladding of any kind, roofing, spouting, downpipes, membrane systems, waterproofing, footing excavations, steel/reinforcing placing or on-site fabrication, concrete or grout placing, site install of any pre-fab systems, installation of an engineered system, joinery installation, fascia, garage door installs, exterior painting or sealing, site glazing, skylights, bracing plaster board installation.
Homeowners and developers applying for a building code compliance certificate also have obligations under section 87 of the Act. Find out how you might be affected and how to meet both council and government compliance by attending a free workshop hosted by Certified Builders Association – spaces are limited.
