Experience Matters

The ACA team has years of experience when to comes to commercial projects. Martin Accatino and Harald Weber have worked on various projects and not many certifiers would have the vast amount of experience that they do within the Cairns area.

Key relevant commercial building approval projects:

  • Cairns Private Hospital – Class 9a, the private hospital had many extensive regulations that needed to be met. Attention to detail was everything on this project.
  • Cairns Aquarium – Class 9b, the aquarium has two floors and a significant atrium area with no separation between floors, this required a complex performance solution. The building also contained many unique features that you don’t see in an every day build, such as concrete trees and glass of significant thickness and span. We helped our clients every step of the way through this process.
  • Cairns Airport – Class 9b, the airport was an extensive project requiring extreme dedication. An incredibly complex performance solution covering no less than 13 variations from the NCC formed part of approval. Many inspections with Queensland Fire Emergency Services (QFES) were performed at midnight and we were there every time to help them through the process.
  • DFO Cairns – Class 6, DFO is a major shopping centre in Cairns with a complex Performance solution in relation to extended travel distances, roller shutters in lieu of swinging doors and smoke exhaust, we are there for the team anytime a new additions are added or shop fit-out is undertaken.

Stuart JacksonMyriad Design

Over many years of working in the construction industry under a range of many types of contracts in Project Management roles, I have been constantly reminded of the importance of choosing an experienced and collaborative consultant team. In the current constantly moving code compliance regime the speciality of each team member is acknowledged during the exchange of ideas to find solutions. As the Building Certifier is often the final arbiter, it is important the input they offer is correct and helpful to the team. We have a long history of working with the All Construction Approvals team under Harald Weber’s management on a variety of projects and are happy with their assistance, prompt service and availability. ACA is our first choice Building Certifying company for our Design and Construction projects.
