The Building Commission is moving!

The Building Commission Division of the Department of Commerce will be located at the Mason Bird Building in Cannington from 25 August 2014.

We will be joining EnergySafety and WorkSafe at the Cannington building and are looking forward to providing you with a convenient and accessible ‘one stop’ location for a wide range of services.

Limited services available on 22 and 25 August

While the reception desk at our current location in West Perth will be open until 3.00pm on 22 August, please be aware that we will be moving on this day and our services will be limited. Services may also be affected on our first business day at Cannington on Monday 25 August.

Unless the matter is urgent, we ask that you please visit or phone us after these dates where possible. We apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused.
