A CASE STUDY OF A SUNSHINE COAST COUNCIL BUILDING APPROVAL

Building Certification for New Home

Client: Aston Milan

When building a new home, look no further than Fluid Building Approvals to get your house certified. When a project builder in Peregian Springs engaged Fluid as the certifier in a developing estate, Fluid was there to help keep the project flowing smoothly.

 

THE PROJECT PROCESS

 

Working together: The Fluid Sunshine Coast and Fluid Planning team worked closely with external consultants and the client to ensure that the property complied with the masterplan and design guidelines.

Negotiating the approvals process: As the proposed dwelling was within a noise corridor, Fluid was there to ensure all acoustic construction requirements were met.

Proactive solutions:

As the property was identified to be within a bushfire zone, Fluid conducted the necessary searches of the site to determine the Bushfire Attack Level and provide detailed recommendations to keep the project flowing smoothly.
