What is a building approval certificate, and can I get it from a building certifier Townsville?

A Building Approval Certificate (or building permit) is an official document that certifies that your building project complies with local laws and regulations and has been approved by the relevant authorities. It serves as proof that your building has been reviewed and deemed safe for use, which is essential for any construction project. Without this certificate, you won’t be able to move forward with building or using your property. Having a valid Building Approval Certificate provides numerous benefits for both builders and property owners alike. For builders, having this certificate ensures that their work meets all safety requirements and can help protect them from any potential liability issues down the line. For property owners, having this certificate means they can rest easy knowing their building meets all legal standards and can confidently use their property without worrying about any potential issues arising in the future due to non-compliance with local laws and regulations.

Ryan and the team at Rapid were super-fast getting my building approval back. I rang them in the morning and was able to start building my shed, the next day. Significantly cheaper than other certifiers in the area also. Highly recommend.

Joshua Collins

Super professional and quick. Every time I contacted Ryan, he was available and, his responses were quick and easy to understand. Made the process run smoothly, without any guessing.

Eleanor Gallagher

We used Ryan for the building approval for our new patio. He provided great customer service and we had the building approval super quick (next business day!), so we could get started with the build.

James McPeake

It's so nice to work with a local company who knows their stuff. Thanks again for the old school customer service Rapid Building Approvals.

Sarah Quinn

I made the switch to Rapid Building Approvals and Ryan Bird for our projects, last year. He has been an absolute pleasure to deal with. I have never experienced such prompt approval and have never looked back. I have had great feedback from clients about their services and I would highly recommend them to anyone who needs certification or advice. 10/10

Lysa Thompson

We engaged Ryan for a patio extension. Very happy with the fast turnaround on the building approval and his extensive knowledge.

Heidi McPeake

My father rang 3 companies locally here in Townsville, to enquire about building a granny flat at his property. We have not yet engaged Rapid Building Approvals formally for our project, but Ryan spent over 20 minutes on the phone to my dad, explaining the process, costs and any potential difficulties that may arise. Other companies just asked us to send plans for us to quote and didn't seem very interested. I thought this alone was worth a review, as it's not very often great customer service like this is found.

Lisa Sutherland

If you want a one stop certification company with great knowledge and great service, then I recommend Rapid Building Approvals.

Robert P

We have used many certifiers over our 15 years in the industry, Ryan and Scott at Rapid Approvals stand out above the rest.

Frequently Asked Questions

Our team are experienced professionals, on hand to help with all of your residential building approvals.


Do I need a Residential Building Approval?

Residential Building approvals for most structures are required if you live within a Cyclonic Region. For South East Queensland Areas, there are certain size exemptions however we encourage you to call our friendly team to discuss your future project

What happens if I don’t get a Residential Building Approval?

This is something we encounter a lot. At first the consequences may not be evident, however we notice a lot of the time when occupants wish to sell their property, a solicitors search on the property will show unapproved structures which in turn could result in the sale of a property collapsing. On top of that, no building approval certificate means no one has ensured your project meets the relevant Australian Standards, to ensure the safety of your property. Local governments, if made aware of unlawful structures, may also issue enforcement notices and in some cases instruct you to demolish your structure.

How much does a Residential Building Approval cost?

It is difficult to give an estimate on building approval costs. Every property is unique, and as such may trigger additional council applications prior to us issuing a building approval. Each local government has a planning scheme that governs development in your area. At Rapid, we are always open to customers calling us and seeking as much information as they can for their property, so we can ensure our price given to you is the final price, with no hidden fees added on afterwards.
