It’s Building Time: How to Build Buildings Legally

You have a dream for a new building. Maybe it’s going to be an apartment complex, an office, a restaurant, or any number of other exciting property propositions. It’s an exciting time, but how do you transition your dream to a reality?

Navigating the work that’s needed to build buildings legally can be a complicated process, especially if the particulars of your plans are in any way unusual. It’s important to go into the process with as much knowledge in your pocket as possible.

If you’re curious about the building process, read on and we’ll cover some of the basics you need to be familiar with.

 

Location, Location, Location

Where you plan to put your building can be as important or even more important than the specifics of the building plan itself. You will need to pick a property that fits your needs.

That means balancing a budget with the condition of the land, it’s placement to roads, and it’s overall proximity to other properties.

You’ll need to look closely at the neighbors around your potential property, the amount of sunlight it gets, and a wealth of other considerations. Once you’ve picked out the perfect lot, it’s time to make the purchase and get to work.

 

Hire An Architect

You might have a very strong vision for what you want your building to be like, but that doesn’t mean you’re the right person to execute it. When it comes to building buildings, you’ll want to have an experienced professional on your team.

That means hiring an architect.

You can download all of your hopes and ideas for the building to an architect, who can transform them into a real fleshed-out plan. Depending on the type of building you want, there may be completed plans already out there available for purchase.

You’ll then need to secure a number of permits from the local government in order to start construction. Your local government website should have more information on what kind of permits you will need for your location.

Once all of that is in place, you’re ready to get constructing!

 

Final Steps

It can be exciting to finally see your building take shape in front of your eyes. Construction can take anywhere from a few weeks to a few months depending on the complexity of your project.

Once you have the building up, they’ll be just a few more steps you’ll need to take. First, you’ll need to have the new structure undergo an inspection. An organization like the Australian Building Inspection Services (ABIS) can do just. They will ensure the building is up to code and safe to open to the public.

You’ll also need to work with local utility professionals to get electricity and plumbing installed. You want to have lighting, heat, and running water in your new building, of course!

With these final steps, though, your new building should be finally up and running.
