Building Stage Inspection

Including Practical Completion Inspection (PCI)

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.

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 (sometimes omitted)
  • 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?

Possibly not. You may certainly pick and choose individual stages. If you are nearby, you can easily check on some of the stages yourself but we are always available if you require additional peace of mind.

We also offer a discounted package price if purchased and paid for upfront.

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.

How do I arrange the inspections?

Simply e-mail

If you would like a quote for a specific package or combination of inspections, please ask.

Do I receive a report of 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 do I do if I am worried about something?

You simply call or e-mail Andrew and he will set your mind at ease or make the appropriate follow ups. When you have the package, you can do this at any time during the building process.
