Inspections during construction help to ensure that what is built remains consistent with what has been approved in the development consent and construction certificate, and that the building will meet acceptable standards of health, safety and amenity.
Mandatory critical stage inspections have now been introduced for the construction phase of development.
Mandatory critical stage inspections for all classes of buildings, including houses, garages and other domestic buildings (such as carports and pergolas).
Melbourne Civil & Structural Engineers may be engaged to assess the condition pre slab pour, frame stage and as required by the building permit. Contact us to see how we can help you on 1300 12 4567
If I could give more stars I would. Extremely responsive and helpful. Adam from Melbourne Civil and Structural Engineers' pre-purchase advice on a 1960s brick veneer house was absolutely priceless. We had already had a regular building and pest inspection that, while thorough, left us with a lot of questions (are the cracks in the brick structural or cosmetic? is the movement something to worry about? what repairs would we need to do if we bought the house?). Adam's advice was all answers. From now on I will only have a structural engineer pre-purchase inspection. I highly recommend MCS Engineers - the advice was very tailored and Adam went way above and beyond to be helpful. We now feel confident about negotiating a price on the house because we know that its structurally sound and we know what repairs are needed to keep that way. Fingers crossed we will be working with MCS Engineers on a renovation of this gem of a house soon.Amy Longhurst - Sunshine West - VIC
