VBA launches Proactive Inspections
Friday February 26 2016
In late 2015 the VBA launched its Proactive Inspections Program to check building works under construction. VBA building and plumbing inspectors visit sites to engage with the Relevant Building Surveyor (RBS) and builder to address any issues early in a project's life, particularly during mandatory inspection stages. Early detection allows solutions to be implemented quickly and cost-effectively and is expected to minimise future complaints. The aim is to improve safety and quality outcomes and assist the RBS in administering their regulatory role. VBA Mail will regularly feature articles on what the Proactive Inspections Program has found to highlight both positive and negative findings.
