Under Construction Building Inspection

Purchasing a BSP Under Construction Report is the best way to ensure your property is being constructed both correctly from a structural and building viewpoint, and also to your personal satisfaction. After all, building a new home is a demanding process and one that many of us invest countless hours in. 

These reports are done in a stage by stage process, thus ensuring all areas of construction are inspected and assessed before completion of the project. Minor problems are therefore identified and rectified as they are created, preventing larger issues from arising at a later stage of construction, which can be costly in terms of money and time.

The most common type of under construction report we do is a Practical Completion Inspection. A home that is practically complete must be "ready to live in", meaning the power and gas must be connected, and all appliances must be working. A Practical Completion Report provides the new home owner with a list of items that the builder must rectify before actual handover occurs and final payments are made. Ideally, the Practical Completion Inspection undertaken by BSP Construction Consultants should take place prior to you meeting your builder for the final time, allowing you to approach handover with absolute confidence that all unfinished items will be noted and fixed prior to you physically moving into your home. Experts in construction throughout Perth and regional WA, a BSP Practical Completion Report is a crucial last last step in getting the finish you desire in your new home.
