Jeff has been involved in the building Industry for over 30 years from design and build through to project management. He started his career in building control as a building inspector at Waitakere Council in 1996 and is currently the Auckland Council Manager of Inspections. His team comprises of building inspectors, CCC assessors, swimming pool fencing auditors, BWOF and COA / durability teams. With over 150,000 building inspections and 16,000 CCC issued over the last year, this team takes great pride in making a positive difference to Auckland’s construction quality. Unfortunately with over 25% of building inspections failing, Jeff would like to provide an insight into some of the trends and learnings gained from the building inspectors who are seeing first-hand the issues facing the industry during the current building boom. He will also cover some Council initiatives, both current and future, that have been designed to make consenting easier for our customers. These topics vary from risk based reduced inspection regimes for proven performers and on-line processes such as booking/scheduling inspections through to our CCC document upload portal.
