GENERAL:


In 1993 I commenced doing Pre-Purchase Inspections, as well as Building Disputes and Mediation Work etc.

Our current works in the Consultancy field are for Pre-Purchase and Pest Inspections, Building Disputes Dilapidation Reports, as well as some Forensic Reports for the Building Sector, Swimming Pool Safety Inspector, Asbestos Inspector, Condensation and Mould Reports.

I also do work for GIO Insurance, Home Owner Warranty Insurance and Owner Builders Insurance. At present, I am still active in the Building Sector bringing to completion various renovation projects in the Eastern Suburbs as well as Insurance repair work.

During September l998, and including January 2000, I worked as a Building Consultant & Supervisor, as well as Building Co-ordinator on the Housing Projects at the Olympic Village for Lend Lease Projects. This project involved co-ordinating Contractors and Building Houses from start to finish. Awarded a Certificate of Achievement for Buildings worth over $3.1 million.

From 2000 to 2010 we had been working in the Insurance Industry with GIO General LTD of which we were one of their preferred builders, which included providing specialist technical reports.

We also did work for Loss Adjusters Gab Robins and McLarens Young. Through these Loss Adjusters, we did works for Westpac, Commonwealth and Alliance Insurance providing Assessment as well as Report Writing for these companies. Our Building Company Durant Building Contractors (Consultants Lic No BC 107) were the preferred Builders for these Companies specialising in all types of Insurance work including fire.

CONCLUSION:

The Building Industry has always been part of my business and personal life with involvement with the M.B.A. & I.B.C., which I am accredited to both.

A considerable amount of training is required to obtain and maintain the accreditation with the M.B.A. and I.B.C. It requires hours of training and attendance to the relevant courses e.g. Timber framing masonry codes, the B.C. A. and relevant building regulations of Australia, I attend regular seminars to get up to date with my CPR information during the course of each year.
