Booked with us by the builder or concreter, foundation inspections are done prior to pouring the footings for a new building or renovation. We either approve the work as is, give a conditional pass (when minor items need resolution prior to certification), or fail the inspection and the work has to be completed satisfactorily and inspected again.
Our foundation inspection covers elements relating to the excavations, piers and reinforcement, including:
Note that STA does not inspect for residential design and siting provisions, compaction of fill material, or cut and fill batters.
You get information about your inspection right away — even while our inspector is still onsite. Our outcome reports include live markup photos for easy identification of conditional requirements, with all documentation delivered digitally for rapid reports.
With STA, you’re never left in the dark about your appointment time or results. From your initial booking through to certification, we keep you informed at every step of the way.
STA is a one-stop engineer with a service range that delivers three key advantages:
Pre-planning your engineering needs means you won’t have to keep re-booking an engineer when you need a particular service. It creates efficiencies that cut service times and save you money by pulling together the services you’ll need, at a lower overall price.
With all your engineering done by a single organisation, your consultants tap into a deeper knowledge of the site and the project, which leads to high quality outcomes, with more opportunities for innovative solutions.
While STA always takes legal responsibility for its engineering designs, an up-front engineering services package makes it easier to trust our work with a strong mutual commitment, and reduced risk of potential interruption or delay.
