Quality building for our vibrant city

Building licence requirements will be strengthened to support construction quality and community confidence across the sector.

Our city is growing and our construction and building industry is at the forefront of the ACT becoming a vibrant place to live, work and play.

The government is working with the community and industry to ensure those building our city have the skills and understanding to deliver construction projects to a high standard as well as safely.

From next year, up to 20 per cent of all builders seeking to renew their licences will need to pass a test. This will ensure their skills and technical knowledge are to the standard expected by government, regulators, industry and the community.

Builders subject to complaints about building quality will also be targeted.

Builders must be licensed to complete work that requires building approval.
