So many people ask us what LBP means. LBP stands for Licensed Building Practitioner. All homes in New Zealand must be designed by either a Registered Architect, or a Licensed Building Practitioner (design).
You can check for the credentials of your designer on the following websites:
New Zealand Registered Architects Board public register:
New Zealand Licensed Building Practitioners public register:
License class "Design"
NZ Registered Architects and Chartered Engineers do not require LBP certification, as the respective professional registrations exceed the standard required for LBP.
