Restricted Building Work.
« on: February 25, 2012, 08:40:31 PM »
From the DBH...http://www.dbh.govt.nz/builditright-homeowners-what-is-restricted

There are some changes you need to know about. From March 1, Restricted Building Work comes into effect. This applies to most residential building or renovation work and only a Licensed Building Practitioner can undertake or supervise the work. 

If you apply for a building consent from March 1 you must make sure that the practitioners you use are correctly licensed to carry out the work. Licensed Building Practitioners include:

Designers,
Carpenters,
Roofers,
External Plasterers,
Brick and Blocklayers and
Foundations specialists.

Professional Engineers, Architects, Plumbers and Gasfitters are treated as Licensed Building Practitioners and can carry out some Restricted Building Work.

Does anybody know what Restricted Building Work we as plumbers and gasfitters are able to carry out?...

A Licensed Building Practitioner (LBP) is a tradesperson you can trust to know how to “build it right”. Licensed Building Practitioners have been assessed as being competent to do the type of building they hold a licence for.

Licensed Building Practitioners have to show certain skills, give proof of practical experience and comply with the building code to get their licence. They also have to gain enough maintenance points every two years to keep it.

There are a number of licences that can be held by a tradesperson. These each specialise in an area of the building process. These licences are:

Design
Carpentry
Foundation
Roofing
Brick and Block laying
External Plastering
Registered architects and chartered professional engineers are automatically treated as design LBPs and you can employ them to do any Restricted Building Work design. Registered plumbers and gasfitters are automatically treated as LBPs in the roofing, external plastering, and brick and blocklaying licensing classes. All can only carry out work that they are competent to do.

So am i to understand that we can do bricklaying and plastering?...

Does this credit show up anywhere in my formal qualifications?

I guess were going to have to pay for 5 licenses every year from march onwards...lol

Not sure Robbo - going by the description sounds more like Licensed plumbing work to me...

"Plumbing role
As a plumbers labourer you will be set the following tasks.

Supporting the plumbing team.
Diagnosing and repairing plumbing faults in pipes, fittings, outlets and appliances.
Laying new pipes in industrial environments.
Installing and laying plumbing fixtures, pipes, and outlets.
Ditch digging, drainlaying and pipe laying.
Our client is progressive and will give opportunities for growth and development within this role.

As the successful candidate it would be advantageous to already have some plumbing tools, including wrenches and saws. It would also be advantageous to have your full drivers license.

If you have experience in the plumbing trade and would like to gain further knowledge and experience in an industrial environment, please apply below today.



Maybe the board should receive an email?!?

it does however say work is in an industrial environ - if it is non-potable pipework fixtures and appliances, well then pretty much any cowboy can have a suck on that sav - we seem to get alot of that sort of carry on down here where essentially anyone and everyone will have a crack @ non licensed work - and even some licensed work...
