new home certification group
The Private Certification process allows an appropriately qualified Accredited
Certifier who is an independent party from the owner and builder to carry out
building approvals and inspections and will ensure that building approvals,
certifications and inspections comply with legislative requirements.
We pride ourselves on our efficient processing of applications and
commitment to always exceed the expectations of our clients.
A Construction Certificate is required after a Development Application (DA) is
issued and before any works are carried out on site. The proposal must comply
with the Building Code of Australia and conditions of consent must be satisfied
prior to issuing.
A Complying Development Certificate is a combined planning and construction
approval that is legislated by the NSW Government. It can be issued directly by a
Private Certifier without the need of going through the Council for a Development
Application Approval. The proposal must meet the NSW Housing Code Criteria
and comply with the Building Code of Australia to be considered under CDC.
A Principal Certifier is engaged to carry out mandatory inspections associated
with a build during the construction process. They will ensure the structure is
completed is accordance with the approved consent, whether it be a Complying
Development (CDC) or Development Application (DA) and Construction Certificate
(CC) as well as checking compliance against the Building Code of Australia (BCA)
requirements. Upon completion of all mandatory inspections and final documents
provided (where applicable), an Occupation Certificate will be issued.
An Occupation Certificate authorises the use and occupation of a new building
and confirms compliance of the built structure to approved plans, conditions and
government legislation. It is issued upon completion of construction of the
structure after all mandatory inspections have been completed and any
supporting document provided to the Principal Certifying Authority.
Not all projects can be considered under Complying Development, we therefore can complete a preliminary assessment on your design (where relevant documents have been provided) to confirm compliance with current legislation.
Hear From Our Clients
Building a house and moving in is quite daunting but when you deal with people as lovely and informative as Louie from NHCG it all seems so much easier! Louie came through the property explaining what he was looking for and why, explained what will be expected and how to go about it and all with such a lovely nature! He even told me I’d done a good job with the flecking in our epoxy floor. Thank you so much Louie for your info today, it was really appreciated! And you NHCP for getting a certifier out so quickly and replying so promptly to all my queries.
I had a difficult site to built. I found them very upfront and efficient service Mr Luke Young, Miss Shikha Uprety and all the team members direct you the right way and provide first class service. Yes, they will tell you if anything is not up to Australian standards. My house was looked after in every stage and every detected fault corrected. I support this great Aussie business. If you ask, will I hire them again? Answer is yes.
Had an overall great customer experience with NHCG especially with Amanda and Nadene.
The team was always happy to help and explained all the requirements and processes involved and delivered on expected timeframes as promised.
Very reasonably priced when compared to others.
Would highly recommend New Home Certification Group for anyone that wants peace of mind for their application.
As a builder, we have had experience working with multiple private certifiers, and have found our experience working with Craig Tibbey and NHCG worlds beyond other service providers. In our industry getting prompt, clear and dependable feedback is critical for keeping our projects moving and maintaining the highest quality. When we engage Craig for a new build, we need his input at regular intervals. He is extremely responsive when we need site inspections, quick to turn around responses regarding technical aspects of the job and gives clear, detailed feedback that we can action to ensure the best outcome.
NHCG were efficient and easy to with. Amanda was of great assistance guiding me through the process for getting the CSC for our home demolition. As the homeowner I found this to be an easy exercise (a couple of phone calls and emails) and substantially cheaper (thousands of dollars) than having my builder do it.
As all development structures come in different styles, sizes and locations,
we like to assess eachindividual proposal to provide an accurate quote to
ensure the best level of service is provided to suit your needs.
