How building work is inspected

The building consent process is about ensuring safe and durable buildings.

When your building work is inspected and a code compliance certificate is issued, you will have documented assurance that your building work complies with the building consent.

All building consents are conditional on being able to inspect the building work. At various stages during construction, you will need to arrange inspections to verify that the building work has been completed in accordance with building consent requirements.
