Assessments

To ensure economic and cost effective design and integration with state and territory regulations and the National Building Codes, TESG will engage with architects, project managers, builders and developers at the pre-development stage. During this phase TESG will work closely with the client to outline design issues and highlight potential performance solutions for the project.

Most buildings require an external building assessment before you sign off on your project. TESG Building Surveyors are registered nationally and can easily and efficiently provide all building approvals. Both mandatory and non-mandatory building inspections can be done throughout all stages of your building works, allowing us to issue your occupancy permits/certificates at the completion of the project.

TESG is here to give you a clear, precise assessment of the compliance position of your building or design so you can make informed decisions. We can assist from the early stages of the design concept and provide timely advice on alternative performance solution methodologies where needed to demonstrate design compliance.

These reports include a risk rating of each item to inform you of potential areas for future investment in your facilities.
