When building a home or investment property through a licensed builder, you are generally at the mercy of the building supervisor in regards to build quality and compliance. It is the role of the building supervisor to ensure that your home or investment property is being constructed accurately as per your plans and specifications, as well as to monitor the standard of work being conducted by the labourers. The building supervisor must make certain that the correct materials are being used and building compliance is being achieved throughout the construction process as per the relevant codes and Australian standards.
The construction process is a complicated one with many moving parts and there are many opportunities for mistakes to occur undetected. By utilising SBI staged progress inspections at critical stages of the building process, you are not only gaining an objective expert opinion that will increase your chance of achieving quality, but you are also keeping the builder in check by helping ensure that the home / investment property is being built accurately and compliantly according to the plans, specifications, engineering, council requirements, and the relevant building codes and Australian standards.
Our expert inspector will conduct thorough staged progress inspections of your property to ensure that quality is being achieved and to make certain that the dwelling is being constructed in accordance with the NCC / BCA and the relevant Australian Standards / manufacturers specifications. SBI will provide you same-day via e-mail a comprehensive report replete with coloured images capturing all of the observed major and minor defects. Our expert inspector will also contact you by phone following the completion of the inspection to discuss the findings and provide you with specific advice, or if you would prefer, will meet you onsite for a face-to-face chat post-inspection.
SBI Staged Progress Building Inspections should take place at the following construction stages:
- Site preparation / footings just prior to concrete pour
- Completion of wall and roof framing
- Completion of roof covering and external cladding (brickwork masonry etc.)
- Installation of internal linings and application of waterproofing
- Completion of joinery / 2nd fix carpentry
- Pre-handover at practical completion (ideally at least 1 week prior to actual handover)
