ABA – TRUSTED & EFFICIENT BUILDING CERTIFIERS

PROFESSIONAL | KNOWLEDGEABLE

Since 2004, Applied Building Approvals (ABA) has offered a comprehensive range of building certification services - from residential to commercial and industrial. As experienced, knowledgeable and professional building certifiers, we often partner with builders and owners at the initial design phase to provide advice, with the bulk of our activity occurring prior to building commencement followed by inspections to ensure compliance. We strive to make the certification process as easy as possible, keeping you informed on progress and being there for timely inspections.
