Your homes built sooner

We have our own team of qualified building inspectors in Victoria, which means we can get more inspections done and when you need them. Choose Group Four as your building surveyor and you can schedule inspections to suit your construction timetable, allowing you to stick to your schedule.

Helping you deliver high quality homes

Our inspectors are all Registered Building Inspectors who insist on the highest standards. We conduct regular in-house training with our inspectors, 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 highest possible Australian standards.

We conduct mandatory and non-mandatory inspections

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

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

1

Pre-slab
inspection

We make sure the concreter has cut the soil as per the engineer’s plans in preparation for the foundations of the house. We also check that the footing is able to support the load bearing of the house, and that the soil is compact enough and ready for the steel reinforcement to be laid.

2

Steel
inspection

We check that the steel reinforcement for the concrete slab has been laid correctly by the concreter. The concrete slab is then placed over the reinforcement.

3

Frame
inspection

We inspect the frame and make sure that it has been put together according to the engineer’s design.

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 wet areas are sealed and that smoke detectors, balustrades and overlooking screens are installed.

Get your results faster

You receive ongoing communication and support throughout the inspection process. You’ll receive an SMS the night before with the details of your booking, a phone call after will the results and an email. You’ll be able to access our portal at all times and view your jobs and results. 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.
