Adelaide Building Consulting was established with one simple goal, to provide you with a service that will put the people in control, rather than the builders.

Our Story

The vision of a seemingly easy building process sounds too good to be true in Australia, and like everyone, you know of someone with a horror story. But throughout our years of experience we have come together to provide you with some of the industry’s leading builders and experts in the field to deliver professional advice.

We are aligned with over 30 building groups, local and national. From Australia’s top builders to Adelaide’s local builders and renovators.

However quality assurance is our prerogative, and all of our builders are vetted and strictly managed before and throughout the process when entering into our network.

Adelaide Building Consulting manage and negotiate with the builder to provide you with the terms and conditions of your contracts, ensuring efficiency and of course achieving Adelaide’s most competitive pricing.

What is a Building Consultant?

A building consultant is a professional who carries out a varied number of general and specific tasks, varying in size and importance within the building industry. We are engaged by those parties seeking a smooth building process, satisfactory outcome and assistance with the construction process.

Building consultants are qualified and have expertise in a number of areas, with access to a strong network of associates to consult with when specialized fields are required. When it comes to building, Adelaide Building Consulting are your experts.

Builders are great at building but unfortunately are not always great at planning ahead and fulfilling all the necessary requirements throughout the process. This can cause problems to arise and with problems can come additional costs. This is where Adelaide Building Consulting come in.

We are trained and qualified to assist you with this volatile process and have the experience behind us to make it all run smoothly with no nasty surprises. We are REISA members, HIA members, registered land agents and ABC-PBCIA trained.

Congratulations your home is now ready and at this point you will pick up your keys. However, this is not the last time we will see your maintenance period will start. From this point on, if any minor problems are to occur, you will need to make note of each of them; your builder will be back after 3 months to fix them.

Practical Completion

you will be invited to walj through your house to inspect and identify areas you wish to fix. By the end of this stage your house is about 97% done.

2nd Fix

We are almost there: your home’s cabinetry and taps are being installed and your house is now complete from the outside.

Internal Walls

Rooms take shape, internal walls go up and the colour and shape of your house start to fill out.

External Walls & Roof

At this point, all of your colour combinations and ideas will be coming to life. Your external walls and roof will be visible.


It will take approximately 4 weeks for your frames to go up. Your house is starting to take shape!


The Foundation is expected to be completed within 4 weeks consisting of trending, plumbing and concrete pour. Some clients will have a slab party, others choose to have imprints of their hands on the slab.

Construction Start Date

From the start date, there are 6 stages of construction. At each stage you can expect the builder to send you invoices. You will need to sign and send them off for processing.

Full Council Approval

Once the council gives notice of approval and appropriate insurances are in place – your builder will issue you notice of a construction start date.


This is the fun part. It’s the part where you get to choose your colours and patentially add that little bit of luxury to your home. We will let you know when selections should be booked with your builder. Allow 4-5 hours for this session.

Council Planning Approval

Council approval is required before your home can be built. Broadly, council wants to know if your house fits on the chosen block of land (Planning Application) and if the house meets all building and licensing requirements (Development Application). You are now ready to start the Planning Application.

Lodge To Council

Now you are ready to lodge your plans for council approval.

Site Investigations

Council, the builder and the architech will need to understand the condition of your block. A review of the soil, site level and engineering is needed. His proceess can take up to 3 weeks.

Building Agreements

When you are happy with your concept drawings, we will proceed to the building agreement with your chosen building company. It should take about 7 days to create the agreement.

Concept Plans

Once you have accepted the sketched floorplans, an architect will transform this sketch into more accurate concept drawings. This should take no more than 5 days.
