Construction Progress Inspections

Construction progress and new home building inspections Perth and WA.

Our home and building inspectors will identify major defects early before your build moves to the next stage.

Construction progress building inspections, or staged inspections as they are sometimes referred as, occur at critical milestones throughout your build process.

They are an opportunity for you to engage a consultant, independent of the builder, to inspect your build and report back on any areas of concern. A second set of qualified eyes, there to identify issues early before they become much bigger problems later down the track.

Our inspectors are all qualified builders with years of experience within the construction industry. They speak to the builder in their language and can be your advocate when dealing with builder disagreements.

Our reports are written in plain English and followed up on the day with an Inspector phone call to debrief on any areas of concern.

All inspections can be purchased as a one-off standalone service or as part of a Construction Inspection Package.

A Practical Completion Inspection, or Handover Inspection, occurs just before actual handover. It is your last chance to ensure everything is up to standard before the builder hands over the project.

This inspection can be purchased as a standalone inspection at the end of your build process or as part of our Construction Inspection Package.
