What inspections do I need?
During processing of the building consent application we will determine what inspections will be necessary to enable us to be satisfied on reasonable grounds that compliance will be achieved. Each inspection will be identified along with the requirements for that particular inspection. A list of inspections will be attached to your building consent.
Inspections by Others
Sometimes it is necessary for specialists to conduct inspections or 'construction monitoring' in addition to the inspections carried out by Council. If a specialist inspection is necessary you will generally be advised before the consent is granted. Typically these types of inspections may involve having a geotechnical engineer confirm ground stability, or having an aspect of specific structural design checked by a registered engineer.
Please ensure you read inspection requirements and are familiar with them before commencing work.
