Do I need a Building Designer

Canberra's regulatory framework for building approvals can be very daunting for those not in the industry, Built 4U Design is here to help you navigate your way through the system.

In addition to the design expertise and documentation skills a Building Designer brings, we also bring knowledge of the planning regulations that determine what the ACT Government will and will not allow to be built on your site.

Residential buildings are regulated by numerous codes that together make up the Territory Plan, these include:

  • Zoning and Zoning Objective Tables

  • Residential Development Code

  • Single Dwelling Housing Development Code

  • Multi Unit Housing Development Code

  • Precinct Maps and Codes

  • Residential Boundary Fences General Code

  • Access and Mobility General Code

  • Water Sensitive Urban Design

  • Australian Standards

  • National Construction Code

These combined make up 1000's of pages of rules and regulations, it's this labarynth that Building Designers spend years learning to navigate.
