  • plumbing and drainage points
  • vapour barriers not damaged
  • review engineering plans
  • assess slab reinforcement
  • step downs correctly located

Inspection 2 – Frame and brickwork

  • tie-downs and bracing for the frame, brickwork, and roof
  • termite system installed
  • correct location of wiring, plumbing, and insulation
  • wall cavities cleaned out
  • quality of workmanship
  • Walls are plumb and level

Inspection 3 – Final handover report 

Once your house is complete, we inspect the whole building

  • from front to back,
  • inside and out.
  • provide you with a detailed and itemised, room-by-room, defects list.
  • review your plans and inclusions list
  • review poor trade work

it is recommended you engage a Surveyor at the pre pour stage to ensure accuracy within accordance of your plans.

During the third (final) inspection, we also review the inclusions list in your contract and report if there are discrepancies or missing items.

Construction Inspections & Certification


This is the first stage of focus once the concrete has been poured and slab allowed to set. A building inspector must ensure the accuracy of the dimensions and size of the slab according to submitted build plans, that plumbing is placed properly and that there are no cracks.

Wall and roof framing

This stage inspects the framing of the walls and roof. Once completed, the role of the inspection determines whether the roof frame, wall placement, windows and doors specifications have been adhered to and properly installed.
