Buildingwise Certifiers – Construction Certificates Newcastle

Buildingwise Certifiers issue Construction Certificates in Newcastle and surrounding areas for residential class 1 and class 10 developments.

After your DA (Development Application) has been approved by Council, we are able to issue a Construction Certificate and be your certifier for the rest of the development.

Once we issue a Construction Certificate, we will certify the entire development by inspecting every construction stage of throughout the construction of the development and by issuing an Occupation Certificate at the end of construction. An Occupation Certificate is the final approval that certifies that the development is safe and suitable to occupy.

We can issue Construction Certificates for residential construction including:

  • New dwellings
