In terms with the National Building Regulations SANS 10400 Part A the erection of any structure on any property requires the approval of the Local Authority prior to the erection of the structure. Pieters Projects and Design prepare architectural drawings professionally and accurately for Local Authority approval.
An as-built drawing is a drawing prepared on completion of a project to document the structures accurately as built.
These drawings are an essential part of existing conditions.
Many home owners do ad hoc additions and alterations over time without obtaining approval from the Local Authority.
This poses a problem with Insurance Companies, Valuators, and financial Institutions, as the structures are not approved by the Local Authority and deemed illegal.
I survey the property and record every structure and prepare accurate as-built drawings for approval by the Local Authority.
A Site Development Plan is a detailed site plan document used by the Local Authority Development Planning to determine if a development proposal has been planned consistently with the Town Planning Scheme and Regulations and intent of the Zoning Code.
A Site Development Plan is required to be approved by the Local Authority prior to submitting building and construction plans for all Commercial, Industrial, Sectional Title, and Gated Estate Developments.
The Site Development Plan and schedule of areas must be updated each time additions are done, and submitted to the Local Authority for approval.
When it comes to definitions, an inspection report can be subject to a variety of meanings depending on its applications. Generally, inspection reports are defined as a document that outlines and tracks information about a certain subject matter.
It can refer to a thing, property, or the life and health of individuals.
It is basically founded upon the importance of safety and security in a particular area or institution.
The main thrust of my reports is to briefly and comprehensively provide a result of a specific inspection.
The body of knowledge necessary to thoroughly inspect a typical South African building is vast.
My training has been designed with two aims in mind:
• To focus on the job-related knowledge needed by every building inspector/Home Inspector and,
• To survey most areas of the building envelope.
Apart from the acquisition of detailed knowledge on the entire South African home building envelope, useful to any building inspector, the full course also provides a certified entry point into the private sector home inspection industry.
