With high levels of building activity in Upper Hutt we are receiving large volumes of requests for building inspections. Many of the projects underway are complex and require specialist or technically trained staff to undertake the inspection.

In addition to the large volume of requests, staff sickness and the impacts of COVID-19 on our team mean that on some occasions customers may find that they face longer wait times accessing building inspections.

What we are doing

  • We are maximising staff workload and redeploying resources where we can.
  • We are training and upskilling our team.
  • We are using contractors for complex inspections. 

What can you do to help?

  • Please plan ahead, you may need to factor longer wait times into your program for inspections. 

We understand that you need certainty to move forward with your plans and we apologise for the inconvenience and potential impact on your projects.

Thank you for your patience.
