Pre Slab Stage Inspection North Sydney NSW

Manuel from iSPECT Building Inspections North Sydney NSW conduct pre-slab building inspections to check that your builder has laid the foundations to plan, prior to the pouring of concrete.

It is very important to the slabs safety and design that a pre slab building inspection is carried out prior to the pouring of concrete. Manuel ensures everything has been set up in compliance with the approved engineers design and drawings, the Building Code of Australia and other relevant codes and standards.

Frame Stage Inspection North Sydney NSW

Manuel from iSPECT Building Inspections North Sydney NSW will carry out a new home frame stage inspection across North Sydney NSW and Regional NSW.

The frame stage inspection is completed after the frame has been approved by the building surveyor who would have been appointed by your builder. The frame stage inspection completed by Manuel is much more detailed than that of the builders surveyor and we check to ensure that:

  • the poured concrete slab does not have any exposed steel around its perimeter. We check for "blow-out" along the edges as well as for any bottom plate overhang which if neither are rectified will potentially create future problems;
  • the concrete slab does not contain excessive cracking and dusting;
  • the concrete slab is level and in most part even;
  • the constructed wall frames are compliant with the building code and the bracing is installed correctly;
  • the roof truss installation and bracing is to plan;
  • the frame meets the engineering design and plans that have been supplied to Manuel.

The lockup stage is often referred to as a pre plaster stage, it is the point in time of building a new house when you can 'lock up' the house. This tends to be when all the windows and exterior doors have been installed.
