Final Inspections

Step 25. Final inspections

Once you've finished the main construction portion of the home you can set about finishing off the fun stuff like landscaping, fencing, driveway, letterbox and maybe even a pool...

You will also need to call for a final inspection with council who will come out to make sure your home has been built as the plans show.

Note:

  1. Termite Management System - While a Structural Steel Frame is a Termite Management System, the Queensland Provisions of the BCA require other portions of a building to have a Termite Management System in place, such as skirtings, architraves, window sills etc. Therefore it may be necessary to install a Termite Management System.
  2. Waterproofing must be installed by a person licensed to install waterproofing membrane.
  3. Secondhand glazing items must comply with legislation current at the time of building approval and certification of such is required.
