Do I require an inspection?

Are you planning a building project and wondering whether inspections are necessary? The answer is: it depends. The type of structure you’re building will determine what kind of inspections are needed.If you’re constructing a habitable building, such as a house or a commercial space, inspections are a must. You’ll need to have a slab and block work inspection, and if you’re using masonry construction, a timber frame inspection as well. Finally, a final inspection will be required before the building can be occupied.

On the other hand, if you’re building a garden shed or any other non-habitual structure, all you need is a final inspection.

Inspections are crucial for ensuring that your building project meets all the necessary safety and regulatory requirements. They can help identify any potential issues before they become bigger problems, saving you time, money, and headaches down the line.
