I simply want to say your service is excellent and I appreciate all of your help and support through what we found a difficult process. I have no hesitation in recommending your firm.

Happy Home Owner

Kim and Connie have been amazing throughout the whole process. We had a deck built that we later found was not council certified. They were very understanding and helpful. If I had any issues concerns or questions they were always more than willing to help. I highly recommend KP Building approvals.

Happy Home owner

We have been working with KP Building Approvals for a number of years now, during that time they have been an absolute delight to deal with and they are very responsive. They have always demonstrated and conducted themselves in a professional and competent manner, Cheers KP Team!

Company Owner

Kim and the team are passionate and professional with their service. With her background experience as a builder (very rare!), she understands the complexities of the building industry. They work with the applicant to solve the approval issue, which often requires thinking outside of the box! Highly recommend.


We have been using Kim as our certifier for the past 5 years. Throughout this time we have found her to be highly knowledgeable, efficient and friendly. NT Shade would highly recommend Kim for your next certifying project.
