Providing building standards that foster decent housing

Building structures that are developed in harmony with the environment..


Welcome to NBRB, we are a body corporate established by the Building Control Act, 2013.  Politically, we report to and are guided by the Minister of Works and Transport.


In accordance with section 9 of the Act, the mandate of the Organization is to:

  • Monitor building developments;

  • Ensure that the design and construction of buildings and utilities to which the public is to have access, caters for Persons with Disabilities (PWDS) to ensure that PWDS are able to comfortably make their way into and maneuver within buildings with dignity, independence and safety on an equal basis with others who have no disability;

  • Oversee, inspect and monitor the operations of Building Committees;

  • Hear and determine appeals from persons dissatisfied with the decisions of a Building Committee; and

  • Determine the fees to be charged by urban and district Building Committees for approval of plans, issue of building permits and occupation permits.
