Here are some of the things that building inspector will take a look at.
First of all, the building inspections Adelaide chap is going to carefully check the exterior section of the building to assess its condition. He will take note of any damage to the casings of the windows and the windows themselves, whether there are any cracks in the foundation and the walls. He is also going to see if the paved surfaces need any repair, whether the landings, the handrails, and the stairs are in good condition, whether the roof is free of deformation, damage and debris and more. Of course, the checklist should also cover features such as exterior visibility, lighting, unrestricted exits and street accessibility.

So first of all, the building inspector will check the lighting, ceilings, floors, but also the walls of the interior spaces.

He's also going to check if the valves can be easily accessed and if they work properly and whether there are visible Exit signs that can make evacuating the building more effective.
