Your homes built sooner

We can get more inspections done and when you need them with the largest fleet of inspectors in Melbourne. Choosing us as your building surveyor means you can schedule inspections to suit your construction timetable, therefore sticking to your schedule.

Helping to deliver satisfactory homes

Our inspectors are all Registered Building Inspectors who take pride in enforcing the standards. We conduct regular in-house training and we’ve established a stringent internal review process so your inspector will always be aware of the latest legislative and industry changes. This means that your homes will be built to the Australian standards.

We conduct mandatory and non-mandatory inspections

Mandatory inspections are a legislative requirement for all Victorian homes. You may also request additional non-mandatory inspections for your home.

The 4 most common mandatory inspections for a residential property that occur throughout the building cycle are:

1

Pre-slab
inspection

At the pre-slab inspection, we check that the concreter has cut the soil according to the engineer’s plans. This is in preparation for the foundations of the house. We also make sure the footings are able to support the load bearing of the house, and that the soil is compact enough. Then it’s ready for the steel reinforcement to be laid.

2

Steel
inspection

At this stage, we make sure the steel for the concrete slab has been laid correctly by the concreter. The concrete needs to be poured quickly after the steel is approved, that’s another great reason to get the inspection result quickly. Once our inspector approves, the concrete is poured over the reinforcement.

3

Frame
inspection

We inspect all aspects of the frame, such as the trusses, bracing, stud work, bottom plate and nailing and make sure that it has been put together according to the engineer’s design. This is a critical inspection stage and often is the longest most complex inspection.

4

Final
inspection

This happens just before the owner moves in; we make sure the house is suitable and safe for occupancy. We check for things like whether the windows have safety decals installed and that smoke detectors, balustrades and overlooking screens are installed.

Get your results faster

As the Site Manager, enjoy ongoing communication. As soon as the inspection is complete, you’ll get an email, phone call and SMS with the result. You can also check the online portal at all times for the job status. And we guarantee that occupancy permits and certificates of final inspection will be issued on the same day. Provided all documentation has been received and the work has been approved.
