Why Use Comm Design
NBN Trained Designer?
At Comm Design I always remind my clients that we need to start planning the communication application as early as possible. After you accept my quote and pay the deposit I will look after all these items before moving onto the next stages of draughting the designs
This is known as early planning and will include things like:
- Eligibility tests
- DA requirements
- Developer site designs and
- Talks with local councils
With small developments ( subdividing one lot into two) NBN recommends that we should be doing this at least 3 months in advance and all other larger developments we need to allow a minimum of six months.
This gives NBN/ Telstra time to arrange their service connections.
Work with an nbn™ trained New Developments supplier
NBN provides training for all designers of their network and whilst it’s not compulsory ( at the time of writing this) there are some major benefits when you use a NBN Trained Supplier.
If you go to the NBN website you will see that they always encourage you to use trained NBN designers.
Trained NBN suppliers are more often than not industry professionals with many years experience. So you know that you are getting a quality service.
The bottom line is that NBN and Telstra put all the responsibility on the developer to make sure the infrastructure on your site meets the standards as so the work of an industry expert is a must!
An NBN trained New Developments supplier can help:
- Fast track the certification process
- Avoid any additional fees from inspections or redesigns
Getting your works underway sooner rather than later is critical because other contractors will need the designs to work with.
Level 1 ASP’s(link to ASP explanation) generally install the pit and pipes in the same shared trench and so they need the designs to be able to arrange the installation.
This design will also be used to work out how much it is going to cost. The land owners or developers will always be making decisions based on costs.
What Will A NBN Designer Do
