Building a new home is an exciting venture but it can be a frustrating process. Group Four building surveyors can help.

We understand what you’re going through

As a builder you want to work with a building surveyor you can trust. One that is reliable, fast and focused on compliance. Substandard inspections that fail to uncover problems can lead to an increase in written directions, which can affect your reputation, push out time frames and add to costs for your home buyer. We work with you to make the process seamless without compromising on compliance. Our online portal helps to keep the permit process simple and organised.

As a Home buyer you want to move into your dream home as soon as possible. You don’t want to worry about whether or not it has been built properly, or whether you have got the right building permits and documentation. Group Four building surveyors work with you and your builder to get you into your dream home faster.

Melbourne home buyers are able to appoint their own registered building surveyor by completing a Letter of Appointment. Give this form to your builder and they will lodge your application, or you can contact us directly if you prefer to do it yourself.

We know what it takes to build from the ground up

Group Four building surveyors have offices in Melbourne and Perth. We know all about the highs and lows of building something from the ground up.

Back in 1999, directors Brad Burton and Michael Madeira were working as council building surveyors. They saw firsthand the frustration of their clients, who were often forced to wait weeks and sometimes months for permits and inspections. They knew it didn’t have to be that way. And so Group Four was born.

Like many other great businesses we started small – in a garage to be exact. But we were focused and determined. And we had a point of difference – our commitment to delivering fast service to the highest possible standards. We fought hard to win the trust and business of the many disgruntled builders and home buyers who were sick of bad service and long waiting times. And soon enough many builders and home buyers like you, began to see that things were different with us. And so we grew.

That was 16 years ago. Today we have thriving offices in Melbourne and Perth and we employ over 50 staff across both states. Meet our team.

Speed, customer service and
compliance are our strengths

A massive part of our success has been our commitment to providing high levels of compliance and customer service. Our inspectors are all qualified and perform their work to the highest standards in some of the fastest industry times.

Our big team means quick lead times on inspection bookings and fantastic coverage across Greater Melbourne, Traralgon, Geelong, Mornington Peninsula and South Gippsland.

We’ve worked hard to use the power of technology to improve the time it takes to deliver building permits and documentation to our customers though our online portal. It lets builders apply for building permits and occupancy permits quickly. And in Melbourne you can use the portal to book in inspections and get results online on the same day.

In Perth you can apply for a Certificate of Design Compliance completely online.
