How Can Detail Building Inspections Support Owner-Builders?

Building, renovating and extending a home can be all be expensive projects to undertake, and so it’s little wonder that so many people look into completing these projects themselves. There are indeed advantages to doing it yourself, especially if you’re a qualified trade. For example, you’ll save yourself thousands on labour, you’ll get to oversee the job yourself, and you can be flexible with the timeline. However, when constructing your own home, there is still so much to consider, so it’s important not to overlook the important stuff!  

When you’re constructing your own house or extension, it is helpful to employ a supervisor that has all the necessary knowledge and skill to help you through the process. Right from planning all the way through to completion, a good building supervisor can help you with:

  •    Trade contacts
  •    Finding good, high-quality materials
  •    Recommending good trades and technicians that will see you comply with Australian regulations and codes as you go.

At Detail Building Inspections, we specialise in providing Adelaide’s owner-builders with thorough and meticulous staged building supervisors that will see their structure is crafted to comply with Australian standards.

If you’re are constructing your own home or you’re about to be, read below to find out the importance and benefits associated with investing in a professional building inspector throughout your construction process:

What Are the Responsibilities of Your Building Supervisor?

When it comes to the construction industry, site supervision is a vital role as safety is a key issue that requires a significant attention on any site. As a building supervisor, our job is to assess and manage safety hazards in the workplace that is your site.

At Detail Building Inspections, our building supervisors will undertake the responsibility of managing and instructing the site workers, setting team goals and ensuring that your site and workers are safe and that your project is compliant with regulations. Below we’ve listed some of the main duties undertaken by a professional Detail Building Inspections Building Supervisor.


The 3 Key Safety Responsibilities of A Building Supervisor

It is important to ensure that all of your building site construction workers are aware of all the safety hazards and precautions so that the site is safe even when you or the building supervisor aren’t there to oversee everything.

Our building supervisors will assist you to ensure that your trades are inducted before they start work, and then checking in with them after that about their on-site safety understanding.


  1.    On-Site

As your site’s building inspector, it is our responsibility to assess the various safety hazards that may be present and determining the likelihood of an accident occurring. This process includes regular site inspections to make sure that everything is running smoothly, as well as looking for and rectifying any issues.

If we can’t fix an issue, we will still bring it to your attention so that you can follow the correct steps needed to ensure it is fixed.


  1.    Site Workers

It is vital that each worker knows how to work safely and without creating a risk to their health and others around them. Our building supervisor team will assist you in ensuring that your workers are remaining competent in these areas as well as others.

We can help to implement a safety routine so that everyone is aware of the actions to take in the case of an emergency.

Your building inspector supervisor will also oversee construction works to ensure that each trades work is complying with Australian Standards.


  1.    Management Approach

While our main priority is safety and ensuring that the work is completed to the highest quality standard, we can also motivate and if required disciple staff. Our team has extensive experience in the industry and can use this knowledge to mentor and encourage members of your team.

Being a building supervisor is not an entry-level job, and if you want to get the most out of this service, you need to employ someone who has a wealth of experience. You could be the most experienced tradesman in the world, but you’ll likely find that building and managing the construction of your home is an extremely stressful task.

Our team will help and educate you throughout the process, to ensure that your construction process is a successful one that is compliant with all Australian regulations to avoid substantial expenses in the future.
