Constructing your dream house isn’t as simple as getting the supplies and starting. There are numerous intermediary bodies involved in the process. This is to protect both you and people in your vicinity from any damages, risks, or accidents. You wouldn’t want someone to build a pool that leaks water into the ground, putting everyone in the neighborhood at risk, and most importantly running out of water. For these reasons, you need a certified building instructor in Adelaide to sign off on your plans before you can proceed.
The building inspector reviews plans for residential, commercial, and industrial buildings to ensure that the building design complies with all national, and provincial building code requirements. Building inspectors also perform on-site inspections to help ensure that the actual construction process and its outcomes comply with all known building codes. Normally these inspections take place both before and during any new construction or renovation.
While building inspectors are normally employed by Federal, Provincial, and municipal governments, they tend to have long wait queues and can hold up your construction process considerably. To overcome that, we can provide you with certified and qualified building inspectors for your construction needs in Adelaide
Our building inspectors are capable of performing all of the following duties – while all might not apply to you, there is a good chance some of them do:
All buildings start with plans, it is easier to nip any issues in the bud rather than have to address them down the line. For these reasons, our affordable building inspectors help you examine plans, drawings, site layouts, for the buildings, building renovations, and any type of proposed structure alike. All so your construction and vision are in alignment with building codes.
Once the plans are approved, it is also important to assess if everything is going per said plans. For these reasons, we can provide affordable building inspections in Adelaide so that your construction process is in complete compliance with all building codes, and that you should be aware of any discrepancies beforehand in case you are not in compliance.
Testing Electrical and Plumbing
All inspection is more than just the physical dimensions, there are codes to help keep you from electrical or plumbing-related risks. You wouldn’t want to risk flooding, or losing expensive electronics to power shortages, or worse, risking the two merging and damaging your property or injuring some people. To avoid all of that, we can help inspect and test electrical and plumbing installations in buildings to help ensure compliance with all municipal, provincial, and federal regulations.
A building’s construction is built on a foundation, that foundation needs to be inspected as well. We can help you inspect and identify any issues with the steel framework, any concrete forms, and reinforcing steel mesh, steel rods, concrete, pre-stressed concrete, all to ensure quality standards and to verify compliance with specifications and building codes. You wouldn’t want your foundation to be too heavy for the ground it’s on, and you wouldn’t want it to be too light that it won’t be able to endure the full weight of your building.
What we can provide
While all building inspectors may be relatively similar, with the same basic qualifications, skills, and abilities, there is more to it than that. The building inspection industry in Adelaide is regulated through building codes on every level. However, due to there not being many regulations on what a “qualified” building inspector, there are many out there who can provide a legal building inspection, but they might not have the experience to do it. To avoid putting you at any risk, our building inspectors are qualified and experienced in construction disciplines to help you acquire a knowledgeable and informed building inspection.
A qualified inspector should have the following:
Building qualifications and licenses
Whomever you hire needs to carry a minimum of an Unrestricted Building Supervisors License. Ensure that your inspector does not have a restricted builder’s license for something like carpentry or painting. Ensuring your inspector has a full range of aspects in building construction will save you a lot of headaches down the line.
To protect yourself you have to make sure your building inspector of choice has Professional Indemnity Insurance, as well as Public and Product Liability Insurance. Them being covered by this type of insurance is a form of certification of their capabilities, as they would not be able to acquire these certifications otherwise.
Make sure you check your building inspector’s past experiences before hiring them. We can facilitate you with the certified property inspection services throughout Adelaide. You can ask us all the questions you want and we can facilitate any requests you may have. We want to make sure that your next construction project goes smoothly and help you and/or your customers experience a comfortable living that is up to code.
