From the Director
How did $3.50 cup of coffee send me on a journey to build the most integrated and comprehensive building certification software available in Australia today?
In 1998 the State of Queensland introduced its own private building certification system, with the aim of improving the building approval system’s efficiency and flexibility whilst providing a choice of service providers.
At that time, I wrote software for a variety of industries including hospitals, football clubs, dental laboratories and time share resorts just to name a few. However, on this fateful day, I was early for an appointment so sat down to enjoy a cup of coffee and read the paper. I settled in for a relaxing half hour. I was struck by an article announcing the privatisation of the building certification industry in Queensland. I immediately contacted the largest of the newly established private certification companies and arranged for a presentation later that day.
That company, now known as Building Certification Group became the first client of Visual Approvals and the rest they say is history.
We write software for the Building Surveying Industry, it is all we do. If you’re a building surveyor & would like to know more about Visual Approvals, then speak to us today.
