Building Stage InspectionS

Don't rush to sign off on your newly built home.

One of the services we offer is to check each stage of the building process to ensure compliance with Australian Standards and Building Regulations.

This can give you the peace of mind that the building process is proceeding as it should and allow any issues to be resolved in a timely manner.

Do I receive a report on the progress of my build?

Yes. The day following the inspection you will receive an e-mail showing the items that have been checked along with photos of the progress of your investment.

What is a Practical Completion Inspection?

This is done as the final check before hand over from the builder. For more information see our Practical Completion Inspection service.

What do you charge for each stage to be checked?

FROM** $280 for a slab.

FROM** $350 for any other construction stage.

** The price will depend on the size, nature and location of your build.  Please email a set of plans to for an exact quote.

What stages are checked?

All builders are different but the most common building stages are when an invoice is raised for a progress payment. These are:

  • Slab
  • Plate
  • Roof Cover
  • Lock up

There will be additional stages in a 2-storey home but your builder will tell you what their payment schedule is before you begin the building process.

Do I need all the stages?

You may certainly pick and choose individual stages if this suits your personal circumstances.

We recommend checks at every stage as certain structural elements are covered up as the build progresses. As we perform a visual only inspection, we may not be able to check these items.

If you are not sure, please contact George or will be happy to advise.
