Our Approach

Experienced Consulting Building Surveyors
who can find simple solutions to meet compliance

United Building Consultants is an independent consulting firm providing building surveying consulting services to  the Victorian property and construction industry. We are proud of what we have done… and what we can do.

Our hard-working and highly qualified team has extensive experience in all types of construction and rejuvenation projects.

We are proud that our proven, professional building code consulting service has  contributed to the construction or development of many iconic buildings, particularly within Victoria. Our services reduce stress and add value through our timely and methodical proactive approach to the compliance review of concept and design drawings.

As we do not accept appointments to act as the Relevant Building Surveyor, United Building Consultants can act on all your projects in the role of the Consulting Building Surveyor. This meets the  requirements of the VBA’s Code of Conduct which commenced on 1 January 2021 and will require significant change to the current practices of appointing Building Surveyors.

Code of Conduct for Building Surveyors

With the introduction of the Victorian Code of Conduct for Building Surveyors on 1 January 2021, United Building Consultants can provide building regulations and BCA consultancy services throughout the design stages of a project. Under the Code, there is a stronger distinction between design consultancy and RBS functions and what constitutes a conflict of interest. The RBS is no longer permitted to participate in a project’s early design phases and Pre-Planning assessments.
