Role of registered builder

A registered builder will be responsible to complete the scope of building works included in your project, and will manage the different trades required. 

Their role includes:

  • checking building and architectural drawings and specifications
  • assist in ensuring that all construction related permits are obtained before the works commence
  • comply with all safety regulations
  • address problems as they occur

Spend some time getting quotes for the work to ensure you have a cost comparison and check that your registered builder has current licences and insurances.
