Who can create building plans?

  • If you are building a new building, doing a major renovation, or extending a building, you need council approval and for that, you need building plans.
  • Local councils will only grant permission if the house plans are submitted by a South African Council for the Architectural Profession (SACAP)-registered professional
  • It's not only an architect who can provide building plans: Qualified draughtspersons, architectural technologists, senior architectural technologists or architects who are registered can do this for you.
  • Qualified professionals will have a SACAP registration number and should also have indemnity insurance.
  • A draughtsperson charges less for house plans than an architect, but has a lower qualification and will not be involved in managing the site as the Principal Agent.

What is included in the building plans?

  • Building plans submitted for council approval often don’t contain all the detailed information about the construction project.
  • Some aspects of the plan require the input of other Pros, like structural engineers or electricians.
  • Speak to your Pro about what they can and cannot include when you request a quote.
