What we will do.

We will undertake an inspection at this stage if so stated in your inspection service plan.

What you will need to do (including a builder, architect or agent acting for you).

You must notify us when site works are about to commence. Whilst in most cases site works may be commenced at the owners risk prior to the plans being approved, there are some circumstances when certain documents and approval need to be in place before works can be commenced. It is always worth discussing with us prior to commencement, especially for new dwellings or where new foundations are to be built within 3 meters of a public sewer.


You must notify us 2 days before site work commences.


Inspection fees will be invoiced.
