Building Consultancy Services

Grant can provide the full range of building inspection reports for his clients including: pre-purchase building inspections, pre-sale building inspections, Meth (Methamphetamine) testing and Asbestos sampling.

“All our reports are produced electronically and accessed via an online link,” he explains. “We are able to complete them within hours of the site visit. They are written in plain English, include an easy-to-read summary, a traffic light “level of concern” rating system and lots of accompanying photographs.”

Like all of Betta’s home and building inspectors Grant comes to the role with a wealth of practical building experience and is easily able to explain any aspect of his inspection and resulting report.

About Grant

For the past 30 years, Grant has been building landmarks all over Marlborough. While most of his work in recent years has been as a site manager running large commercial jobs, there have been some very interesting, high-end residential builds as well. With all this experience, Grant has a keen eye for detail and a sharp mind for problem-solving. As a Licensed Building Practitioner and with his extensive knowledge and understanding of building practices and construction methods, Grant is well-qualified to undertake pre-purchase and building inspections.

As a proud Marlburian, Grant enjoys all the region has to offer, and with the Marlborough Sounds a stone’s throw away, can often be found boating and fishing. A dedicated family man (Dad of 4 and Grand-dad of 2) and a keen member of the Marlborough Vintage Musseleers Golden Oldie’s Rugby Team, Grant also has a love of travel and exploring the world, so it’s just as well his wife has a Travel Agency!
