When do you need an LBP?
If you’re thinking of getting building or renovation work done on your house or apartment, you need to check if it’s ‘restricted building work’ (RBW). If it is, you’ll need a licensed building practitioner – or LBP – to do it.
Restricted building work involves the building’s structure, weathertightness, and design of fire safety systems. RBW is everything that involves or affects the:
Primary Structure – This work contributes to the resistance of vertical (such as walls and columns) and horizontal loads (such as foundation, floors and roofs).
Outside of the building, which has an influence on weathertightness – This includes anything that prevents the entry of outside moisture and helps control moisture inside the building fabric.
- Damp-proofing your floor area, on and underneath floors.
- Roof and wall cladding systems (windows, ventilators, openings and penetrations etc.)
- Waterproofing anything that is exposed to airborne moisture or can allow moisture to enter the building, such as a balcony.
- An adjacent household unit in an apartment building is at risk if one catches fire.
- Automatic doors and windows.
- Escape routes.
Because this work is so important, it’s only allowed to be done by licensed building practitioners (LBPs).
LBPs are assessed before getting licensed, and have to maintain their skills to keep their licence.
