Licensed Building Practitioners
From 1 March 2012 critical building work that is known as Restricted Building Work, must be done by an LBP (Licensed Building Practitioner). Homeworld’s Designers and Builders are LBP members.
LBPs are building practitioners who have been assessed as competent to carry out the building work essential to the structure or weather-tightness of residential buildings.
A Registrar appointed by the Department of Housing decides on licensing applications (based on assessors’ recommendations), and administers the LBP online public register of practitioners. LBPs are listed on the online public register, along with details of their licenses.
The LBP logo confirms for consumers that the building practitioners they are engaging have been assessed as technically competent in their licensed field.
