How the Fluid Building CERTIFICATION WORKS

We get to know you

“Hello! Welcome to Fluid.  Tell us about your project”.  These are the first words you will hear.  You don’t need to know the answers, we will take the time to understand your building certification project, and explain the steps

Your project details

At Fluid, our greatest joy is to make building certification easy (and maybe even fun!).  We will listen to your project details, provide a written quote and help you find any documents you require.

Start your building approval

Your project will be managed by an experienced Brisbane building certifier, digitally queued and tracked. You will receive updates and a high five when the job is done!

Adjustments required – no problem

Should your project require adjustments, your assigned Fluid Client Relationship Manager and Building Certifier will personally liaise with you to clearly explain the situation and walk with you to keep your project on track.


Good news! Fluid is licensed to provide building certification on behalf of your local council.  The result is we provide hassle free building approvals in an excellent time frame.  Should your approval require council involvement, Fluid will liaise with council for you.

Fluid Brisbane provide you with a written project certification and notify your local council for their records.

A case study of building certification

A large house with pool that had its building approval done by Fluid Building Approvals

Building certification of a home extension in Hawthorne, Brisbane

Building Certification For Extension

When the next project is a renovation or extension, Fluid Building Approvals and Planning are here to provide peace of mind. When the owners of this classic Queensland home in the south Brisbane suburb of Hawthorne recently chose a designer and builder to complete a home extension, Fluid Building Approvals were there to provide a complete building certification service.


The project process:


  1.  Working together: The Fluid team took the time to work with the designer and builder to identify any challenges early to streamline  the process, saving time and money.
  2.  Negotiating the Approvals Process: As Hawthorne is a traditional suburb, Fluid successfully submitted the required development application  to Brisbane City Council and advised on specific traditional character requirements.
  3. Proactive solutions: The Fluid team understood the importance of providing proactive advice for specific elements of the  Hawthorne build, like the installation of the fireplace, to ensure the project stayed on track while meeting all required building  codes and laws.
