Construction Progress Inspections - back
 
 
For the discerning owner with a new house or extensions under construction.
We offer independent inspections at critical stages of construction.  If you need building progress inspections, ABS inspections are for you.  This service will assist  you with building problems, help owner builders, assessment of the standard work carried out or ass progress claims.

It is a small investment to help solve a dispute, keep the job running smoothly or just reassurance.

While the building is being constructed there should be an overseer who is aware of building requirements to perform regular inspection and reports, to ensure that the building is constructed to your expectations.

We prefer to work for our clients interests without causing added tension or conflict with the contractor so the building process is not delayed by problems or rectification work during its construction.
