Some ‘tradies’ have got caught out recently by not having a design licence.
It seems to me that most people understand the need for a brand new residential building to have an LBP designer involved at consent stage, get a “COW (certificate of work)” issued (and for any alternations to the drawings that involve restricted work). However, what has missed some people’s radar is the fact that drawings for renovations and alterations (if it is only a roof for e.g.) also require an LBP designer.
