Fees

Certification Fees

The fees charged by Certified Building Solutions vary depending on the type and complexity of the building work.  

Residential and Simple Commercial Buildings

We charge a flat fee that covers all services provided by CBS relating to your project including processing of building approvals, verification of DA exemption for single residential building projects, liaison with relevant government agencies, inspections and document preparation.  

Large Commercial Buildings

The fee calculated is based on a percentage of the value of the building work, and will vary depending on its complexity.   As well as the standard certification services provided by CBS, the fee covers the inspections we undertake that are additional to those mandated by Building Act 2004 and any additional investigations required to ensure your building project complies with relevant legislation, regulations and standards.

Please contact us for further information about fees for your project or a full written quote.
