Pre Purchase Assessments
Approximately a third of all homes sold in Australia has at least one serious fault*. Archicentre is Australia’s only national provider of independent home inspection services undertaken by qualified Architects. Located on the Gold Coast, Bevan Sim is one of many assessors.

Building Construction Inspections
