Staged construction inspections ensure safety and quality standards are met

Let’s start with the basics – what is a construction/building inspection? It is a check for structural integrity, compliance with building codes and regulations, and any potential safety, the quality of the workmanship and the overall condition of the building.


As well as ensuring the build complies with the Building Code of Australia and specific Australian Standards

We provide reports at each stage of the build:

– Slab Inspection
– Plate Height Inspection
– Lock Up Inspection
– Roof Frame Inspection
– Practical Completion

Building inspectors are in no way aligned with your builder, they are independent and provide an experienced eye over the build, at each stage, to provide clients with peace of mind. It enables any concerns to be brought to the attention of the builder before moving onto the next stage.

Paul from broad building inspections was available anytime when I needed assistance. If I had any questions he was always happy to answer them. If I didn't have broad building inspection the building company would of done whatever they like. If I was to building again I would definitely use broad building inspections.
