Finding a structural problem with your new home or commercial building after you have purchased it can be disappointing and sometimes costly.

A number of Structures require building permits. These include:
If you have a structure that was constructed without approval from Council, our inspectors can assess the structural integrity and provide you with the supporting documentation required to gain a Council Building Permit approval. Should you require remedial work, our experienced team can provide you with the advice you need to ensure the best outcome is reached.
Are you concerned about the effects of nearby construction on your property? Our expert team will review the condition of your property before construction commences and will provide you with video or photographic evidence of their findings.
If you believe the neighbouring works have affected the condition of your property, we will return to undertake a comparative survey of the areas of concern.
Our experienced team is able to attend site to ensure that what is constructed as either incomplete or defective works, including the use of secondhand or recycled materials in your owner-built project. Within six and a half years of completing the building work, this is a requirement of the Victorian Building Act 1993 and forms part of the Section 32, helping you sell your home.
Accreditation Level 1 & 2 Inspections:
What is a Level 1 inspection? Our level 1 bridge inspection and culvert inspections are a visual inspection of the structure, aimed at identifying any unusual characteristics or anomalies that warrant further detailed inspection.
The Level 2 Condition Assessment, often referred to as the Detailed Visual Bridge Inspection, enables the assessment of a bridge’s condition and early detection of any damage or deterioration that may pose a safety hazard. Early detection can also prevent accelerated deterioration.
