    Am in Melbourne and doing a 4 townhouse development. What I am finding lacking with our Building Surveyor is that he only comes for the mandatory inspections .

    Are there other building inspectors which look also at whether the build is occurring as per the plans and quality control assessment? Other considerations eg waterproofing, drainage, plumbing as these are not looked at by our Building Surveyor???

    The building surveyor who issued the permit is only looking at regulatory compliance. Not quality control etc. You will need to find an independent building inspection service. I'm guessing that you don't have an architect looking after construction - an architect would normally be involved in quality control

    We have a Superintendent whose role just seems to be administering the payments, not quality control.

    Hi MTR, could you please pass on the details by private message of this retired builder, as we are finding it difficult to find someone.
