I aim to help you balance environmental living with bushfire protection

Are you in a bushfire prone area?

I am a qualified and accredited bushfire consultant and I can help you determine your risk and protect your development from the threat of bushfire. I will work with you, your team, the Council or certifier, and the NSW Rural Fire Service to get you the right outcome. 


What I can do for you

Bushfire attack level (BAL) certificates and assessments.

Bushfire hazard assessment reports for new residential, commercial and industrial buildings, alterations and additions, subdivisions and planning proposals.

Bushfire consulting for siting, design, planning, and building your development.

Reports and advice determining if a building or proposed building complies with Australian Standard 3959 'construction of buildings in bushfire prone areas'.

Professional reports and certificates complying with legislative requirements.

Pre-purchase and pre-occupation inspections on bushfire prone land.

Assistance and advice relating to:

  • bushfire survival plans, voluntary building upgrades, and 10/50 clearing code,
  • development application and certification processes,
  • complying development applications,
  • updating architectural and landscaping plans and documents to demonstrate compliance,
  • products, services and interpreting legislation, codes and standards. 


Why should you choose PROBABAL?

I hold BPAD Level 2 accreditation (BPAD 49524) and I am a corporate bronze member of the Fire Protection Association of Australia.

I come to you at your preferred location and time.

I offer a quality and thorough personal service being a small business.

I have 15 years experience in Local Government assessing, approving, inspecting and certifying developments on bushfire prone land at Wingecarribee, Wollondilly, and Campbelltown Councils.

I know what can go wrong when authorities assess applications, and therefore the importance of quality reports and plans clearly outlining bushfire compliance which align with the recommendations of any other consultants, like an ecologist.

I listen to your needs, and communicate with your team to ensure the best outcome through all stages of your development. 


I will work out as early as possible if I am able to assist you, and in the event I can't, I can refer you to the best consultants with a higher accreditation level. 

I have a thorough working knowledge of the NSW planning and building legislation relating to bushfire protection, including Planning for Bushfire Protection, the Building Code of Australia, and AS3959  'construction of buildings in bushfire prone areas' .

My location reduces your cost for me to travel around Wollondilly, Sydney, Wollongong, Shellharbour, Shothe Southern Highlands and Tablelands, and the Blue Mountains.

My competitive hourly rate of $125 (consulting/reporting) and $66 (travel) means straightforward local jobs cost you less.

My free initial consultation/estimate before any charges incur (limited to 15 minutes).

I hold a Graduate Certificate in Bushfire Protection, and a Diploma of Environmental Health and Building Surveying.

I hold the required professional indemnity and public liability insurances.

I am a volunteer firefighter with the NSW Rural Fire Service, and secretary of my local Brigade.

I am passionate about bushfire protection and want your business!
