Description

This qualification reflects the role of experienced senior building designers who apply substantial specialised knowledge and skills to the management and leadership roles in an organisation or business area.

Practitioners are typically responsible for managing a building design practice and undertaking building design projects covered by the National Construction Code (NCC) including the design of both Type A and Type B constructions. They may specialise in the full range of residential, commercial, public or industrial projects, including new buildings and renovations. In these roles they are required to generate and evaluate complex ideas and to initiate, design and execute the major planning, research, design, operational, compliance and management functions within highly varied or specialised building design contexts. Typically, they would have full responsibility and accountability for the personal output and work of others.

Licensing requirements apply to building design in some states or territories. For further information, check with the relevant regulatory authority.
