BUILDING INSPECTIONS

We carry out building inspections on projects we are the consultants. This is a necessary part of the project to ensure the builder has followed the intent of the documents. But we are also able to carry out inspections of buildings which are subject to cracking walls, sagging roofs or floors, or to inspect a commercial building where a significant load is to be placed on a floor not intended in the original design. Thus we report on our findings and do this all for a moderate fee.

We can inspect existing buildings where a modification is required like removal of a wall or addition of a new floor.
For insurance reasons we cannot make pre-purchase inspections of houses or other buildings. There are like colleagues who specialise in this service.

We can supply storm water design documents prepared for Council Endorsement via Building Surveyors or Planners.
