This qualification reflects the role of building surveyors or certifiers who apply knowledge of compliance requirements and construction methods and materials to the implementation of statutory building surveying requirements or to the provision of advisory building surveying services.
The scope of work undertaken by building surveyors varies across jurisdictions and can include:
providing code-consulting advice to clients on the compliance requirements for proposed building developments
processing planning and building applications
conducting mandatory construction inspections
auditing buildings and following up on areas of non-compliance
issuing certificates of occupancy.
Building surveyors require an understanding of relevant compliance requirements as well as of traditional, new and emerging construction methods and materials. They make a significant contribution to the development and construction of the built environment, often working in collaboration with specialist consultants to assess and verify that proposed and actual building works are compliant and to ensure the safety of building occupants.
Building surveyors work in a highly regulated environment and must carry out their role ethically and according to legislative and regulatory requirements.
Licensing, legislative, regulatory or certification requirements apply to building surveying in some States. Relevant state and territory regulatory authorities should be consulted to confirm those requirements.
