We help clients with all sorts of building approvals, including pool certifications in Brisbane, Gold Coast, and Sunshine Coast. If you are thinking seriously about building a private swimming pool, you will need to go through the necessary channels to get approval and certification. We can lend a hand with pool safety certificates in QLD.
Building a Swimming Pool: What to Expect
While a swimming pool is a very special and unique feature of a property, the process of getting the approvals to build one isn’t that different from many other residential improvements. Indeed, in the building code, swimming pools are considered a part of the Class 10 category, which encompasses ‘Non-Habitable buildings or structures.’ In addition to swimming pools, carports, sheds, verandas, patios, retaining walls, solar panels and fences are all Class 10 structures.
If you have added any of these structures to your property since you moved in, you are probably vaguely familiar with the approval, certification and inspection processes involved. Do note that there are a few extra considerations with swimming pools, given the inherent safety risks. If you are unsure about your pool certification, please give our friendly Brisbane team a call on (07) 3823 2829.
If you haven’t gone through the building approval process before, or if you want to make sure you aren’t missing any safety requirements with your swimming pool design, KP Building Approvals can assist you. We help you get your pool safety certificate if you are located on the Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast or Brisbane—whether that means consulting on your swimming pool design, advising you on building code requirements, helping you lodge your application with the council or all three. We can also do post-completion safety inspections, to shield you from liability and ensure that your pool is safe and structurally sound.
