An intelligent team of building certifiers that go above and beyond

Our team of building certification professionals is next-level. Not only were each of our certifiers trained in-house, where they learned all best practices, but as a team, we’re a step above. We’re the team that takes on the more difficult jobs, like retrospective inspections, and where many of our competitors specialise in supporting builders, we’re here for homeowners and developers.

It’s a one-on-one, personalised service, and we do everything we can to make it as seamless and straightforward as we can.

The KP Building Approvals Story

The KP Building Approvals story isn’t quite as straightforward as our intelligent processes and team. Our Founder and Director, Kim Pound, started her career as a builder, working in that industry for 15 years, before pivoting into building certification just 15 years ago.

In 2013, Connie established KP Building Approvals, a family business shared with her mother, Kim Pound. It was soon after our establishment that we made the move from the Northern Territory over to Queensland. Kim and Connie soon expanded the team, hiring two new, in-house certifiers, who we trained with our own best practices. 

Today, we’re based out of Capalaba and with relevant experience across both states, we service Queensland and the Northern Territory. We’re proud of the impact we’ve had across the building industry.
