Our Process

The building construction approval process isn’t as complicated as it may seem. At Integrated Construction Approvals, we will work with you at every stage – from the very first contact we have with you, through to when the project is finalised.

After your first contact with ICA, we will provide a timely response on initial project enquiries – including detailed quotes and preliminary compliance advice. 

Upon engagement, we will take a collaborative approach with the design team to ensure progress. 

As the project progresses, we will provide reviews and feedback to the design team. 

During the final design phase, we will ensure our feedback works to achieve the desired outcome. 

We will then complete a final project evaluation to determine the application for building and construction work. 

We will issue the Approval Documents to enable construction to commence.

During the construction phase, our team will carry out mandatory inspections to ensure your project meets legislative requirements. 

Finally, we will review required project certificates and issue a Final Certificate upon completion.
