In an effort to raise the standard of building construction documentation and to provide greater levels of professionalism to clients, builders, contractors and councils, Building Designers Association of Australia has introduced a system of independent accreditation for Building Designers.
This scheme is endorsed and promoted by Building Designers Associations of Australia, and can apply to all design professionals not covered by alternate and appropriately recognised schemes. The scheme is further recognised by The NSW Department of Community Services (DoCS) and is a requirement for all Building Designers practicing in NSW in the child care industry.
BDAA works with a number of Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) such as TAFE NSW and the Master Builders Association to develop, maintain and deliver the competency training required to meet the expectation of governments and the building industry.
Any building designer who want to undertake voluntary accreditation, as a pathway to further education or as a requirement to design child care facilities, can access this service as part of their BDAA Australia membership.
