New Building Act Helps Perth Patios


Perth, WA, Australia -- Perth home renovators can now have their projects completed much quicker thanks to the recently introduced Building Act of WA. Perth patio specialist Marcus Fulker of said this new building act can shave months off the approval waiting period for projects such as patio additions.
“Our customers want their patios quicker than ever and these new changes allow us to greatly improve our turnaround times,” said Fulker. “By having strict timeframes to assess building approvals, local councils can no longer just sit on the application.” he said.

“Most people are unaware that all patio additions need council approval before building can commence, which previously could hold projects up by months.”

“Another key frustration has always been the inconsistencies between the local authorities, an issue that could add even more time onto an already slow process.”

Fulker, who owns and operates Great Aussie Patios, said the new building act will offer several key benefits to homeowners looking to build:

  • The ability to engage private Certifiers – an improvement that greatly speeds up the approval process
  • The assurance that Councils must approve applications  within two weeks – a process that previously could take months
  • Standardisation of forms across all 140 local shires - meaning home owners with multiple properties need only learn one application process, simplifying things greatly

Fulker’s company was prepared for these changes in January when the Act was originally planned and his customers are already benefiting from this prior planning, now that the Act has finally come into being as of April 1st.

“We have already had great feedback from customers who were excited to hear that we could get started on their patio even quicker than before,” Fulker said.

“This new act has also allowed us to give our customers a guaranteed timeframe for completion as we are no longer held to ransom by the council as we wait for approval,” he said.

“It is great result for everyone!”

Fulker’s company Great Aussie Patios grew from a passion to make the most of the beautiful climate we have in Perth by offering extended living areas outside through quality, well designed and affordable patios.  To find out more go to
