Check with your local council for your site, our larger buildings come with a code of compliance certificate (CCC) with the building only.  

Your onsite consent and all other documentation can be organized by our architect to complete on your behalf, this can be included in your quote.  

Once consent is granted by the council the build begins. Build time is generally between 4–8 weeks depending on the size of your model/design.  (10m2 Cabins do not require Council Consent)

If your building is: Less than 3.1m wide – no pilot vehicle required.
Over 3.1m but under 4.5m (including eves) – one pilot vehicle required.
Over 4.5m – two pilot vehicles required.
