Due to the specialized nature of these types of developments, there is a specific Commercial Division within Checkpoint Offices to consult on these types of projects.
The Commercial Team prides itself on efficient turn around times and expert consultancy for all large scale developments. Early consultation is where we are most beneficial. Identifying problems in design at DA / Planning stage or before, identifying Alternative Solutions for fire engineering and cost effective fire safety systems for fire brigade consultation is extremely important at these early stages.
All major developments have Director level involvement driving the design and consultants to set up the initial Regulatory parameters that will form the basis of the cost effective design for compliance.
Checkpoint works very closely with Fire engineers, fire service consultants/designers, DDA experts and all fire brigades in all State and territories to provide surety in their advice and ultimately in the design.
Checkpoint has personnel in Victoria, NSW, WA and Queensland to handle all types of work and provide the valuable expertise required for major developments.
It is imperative that any Building Surveying organization backs up this initial Regulation advice and consultancy with adequate resources throughout the project design AND construction. Checkpoint Building Surveyors, in all offices across the country, have the highly trained technical staff to process approvals through stages if necessary as design documentation is being developed. We also provide the necessary resources during construction for queries and confirmation of regulatory requirements to ensure the finished product is compliant and all Occupancy Certificates are processed in a timely and efficient manner.
As a national provider of regulatory building certification throughout Australia, our clients benefit from a specialist consultancy providing –
consistency in regulatory advice,
accountability for regulatory decisions and authority consents,
project management of regulatory consultants including fire engineers, Disability Experts, fire services engineers, services designers, etc

The Checkpoint Building Surveyors Commercial Team is dedicated to providing a professional and timely regulatory expertise that is of great value to any Design Team and provides cost efficiencies to Developers.
We welcome early review of documentation even prior to planning submission to ensure no surprises after. We follow the project from conceptual through to completion and ensuring compliance, risk minimalisation, cost effectiveness, smooth passageway of design documentation and construction making Checkpoint Building Surveyors a valuable asset to any development, small or big.
