SBT Designs is an accredited member of the Building Designers Association of Queensland
In Queensland there is no difference in the work that can be done by a building designer as opposed to an architect.
There are some differences in education and regulation between the professions but these make little difference to their work output and the end result. In fact, most architects engage a building designer to make their designs work in regulated life and meet various statutory building codes.
A building designer must be licensed by the Queensland Building Services Authority at a level suitable for the type of work to be undertaken.
For design and/or documentation you should only contract with a BSA licensed building designer or a Board Registered architect or engineer. It’s your choice. With SBT Designs, you are assured that your building design complies with the Building Code of Australia, certified in every state, territory and local authority in Australia.
With SBT Designs, you have peace of mind of award winning designs, industry qualifications, experience and full professional indemnity insurance.
Others (unlicensed designers or architects) who offer to do design or documentation work are working illegally and this may jeopardise the chance of your project gaining the required approvals, result in structural deficiencies and void statutory and personal insurance policies.
Before you start, you should do your homework. Pre-planning and working through your ideas can save a lot of heartache and cost before it's too late.
The aim of BDAQ members is to have satisfied clients whose criteria have been met in every respect. This goal is generally achieved as evidenced by the number of successful building designers with satisfied clients throughout the state.
Whether you are planning a new building, an extension or renovation to an existing building or just raising your house, a building designer can design your project.
A building designer will work with you to enhance your lifestyle or to create an efficient workplace without sacrificing the building’s visual appeal or exceeding your budget.
Your building designer will work hard to determine the most cost effective, user friendly and practical solutions that not only look good but also meet your requirements.
