In Auckland, building inspections have become increasingly important due to the increased development in the suburbs. As well as suburbs, new developments in outer areas of the city are also subject to building inspections by the Auckland Building Control Authority (ABCA). A building inspection is usually carried out after the completion of a construction project, so it’s important that this time frame is included when approaching a company for services. Source
The inspection report is the document that gives the building owner an overall view of the work they have commissioned and details all of the work that needs to be completed before the end of the construction season. It will also detail any issues that need to be resolved throughout the construction period, including any major or minor issues that may occur during the build up to completion of the project. Any recommendations made by the ABCA are also documented within the report, so it’s important to pay attention to these.
Finding a reputable company to carry out a building inspection in Auckland can be difficult. Companies will typically only have years of experience on the job and even then it may not always be possible to ensure their standards of work have been upheld. It’s essential to only choose a company that has several years experience in the industry and has been recommended by professionals in the industry. It’s also important to choose a company that will manage the construction process with professionalism and care so that you can relax and know your property will be in safe hands.
