Budget Builds Services: Post construction handover process for low cost housing
It is common procedure to follow a post construction handover process once a new building has been completed. Low cost housing providers will need to follow the same procedure as large building and architectural firms. It is best to choose a building concern which offers the hand over process and the acquisition of the occupation certificate as part of their service.
What is included as part of the post construction handover process?
Acquisition of certificates of compliance for the electrical and plumbing work carried out on the property.
Completion certificates will be gathered from the Civil/Structural Engineer and Truss Company to confirm that all has been completed according to the building guidelines as stipulated by the municipality and city council.
Setting up an appointment with the Chief Building Inspector and further application for occupation certificate.
