What is a PCI/Building Handover Inspection?

A PCI, or Practical Completion Inspection, also commonly known as a Building Handover Inspection, is a thorough assessment conducted by qualified building inspectors to evaluate the overall condition and compliance of a property before the final handover from the builder to the owner.

It provides peace of mind to the homeowner, knowing that their investment has been built to a high-quality standard.
