Pre Slab Pour Inspection
The Pre Slab Pour is an inspection of your home’s base, piers, steel and formwork prior to pouring concrete, to ensure everything has been properly constructed and ready for concrete to be poured.
This inspection stage is generally conducted the afternoon before the slab is scheduled for concrete pour. Once concrete has been poured, there is no way to know what issues exist in the slab structure, until it’s too late…

Frequently Asked Questions
The pre slab pour inspection is immediately prior to pouring the concrete slab, usually the afternoon prior.
We check all of the elements of your new home at the pre slab pour inspection stage to ensure it is properly constructed.
There are literally hundreds of things we check, but the main things are the base, pier locations, steel reinforcement, vapour barrier, waffle pod location, plumbing pipes, formwork, and many more.
The pre slab pour inspection can, and often does sneak up on owners, as the builder may not always provide updates until the last minute.
Therefore, we suggest that you inform your builder that you are having this stage inspected ASAP, and try to give us 2-3 days’ notice.
Yes, we can certainly assist with that. Simply provide us with the contact details for your builder/site supervisor and we will help, keeping you informed of any updates.
