Notum BCA was formed to provide a boutique Building Surveying consulting service to assist designers of commercial buildings resolve building code issues during design documentation. With over 20 years’ experience in the building surveying/certification profession, its noticeable that building code requirements have increased in complexity.'

Since its introduction, the Building Code of Australia (BCA) has evolved from a prescriptive document to a performance-based document to cater for innovative design. We offer a range of Regulations Consulting services from comprehensive assessment reports on your design proposal for BCA d-t-s or performance compliance, technical advice on matters raised by a Building Certifier on a building application or other matters such as sourcing ‘evidence of suitability’.
In providing these services Notum BCA does not undertake ‘Private Building Certification’ functions on the project to manage ‘conflict of interest’ provisions under the Building Act 1975.


Notum BCA is staffed by fully qualified and Accredited Level 1 Building Surveyors (AIBS) drawing on over 20 years’ experience in the field of building surveying and certification associated with a range of Class 2 to 9 buildings.
