Commercial building certification for the Doug Larsen Skate Park, Beenleigh QLD

Building Certification for a Skate Park

For commercial projects big or small, Fluid Building Approvals and Planning are here to help. Fluid was proud to recently certify Australia’s first international-standard skate park, where the multi-million dollar upgrade will be used to host national skate and BMX events.


The project process:


  • Working together: The Fluid team worked closely with the project co-ordinator and engineers to identify any challenges early to streamline the process and ensure the project runs on time and within budget.
  • Negotiate the Approvals Process: As the first-of-its-kind skate park in Australia, Fluid successfully approved the ‘Special Structure’’ and submitted the required building application to Logan City Council and advised on structural and safety requirements.
  • Proactive solutions: To ensure the project flows smoothly, the Fluid team provided advice for specific elements of the skate park (such as the ‘Special Structure’ requirements under the Building Act) to ensure the project remained on track whilst meeting the required building codes and laws.
