Private Certifiers & Building Surveyors for the Greater Newcastle Area – Buildingwise Certifiers

Buildingwise Certifiers is a locally owned and operated certification company, servicing Newcastle, the Hunter, and surrounding areas. We provide fast-track approvals and certificates, that are as hassle-free and stress-free as possible.

Buildingwise has a proven track record. Our head Private Certifier, Peter Moroney, has over 10 years of experience as a Private Certifier alone, and over 40 years of experience in the construction industry.

Our team understands what it is like to be in the shoes of Owners and Builders and the challenges they face. The Certification team has extensive experience getting their own building and construction jobs certified by others. We know the process from both sides of the fence.

Our Certifiers pride themselves on being approachable to all involved… Builders, Tradesmen, Designers and Owners, and we are happy to advise on how developments can comply with building requirements.

Whether this is your first time negotiating the construction industry, or just your first time using Buildingwise Certifiers, we would love to meet with you and chat about your project!

Planning Advice

When you are unsure what you are allowed to build and how to get approval

I have had the occasion to engage Buildingwise in a number of constructions over the past decade.

They have always been prompt, professional and courteous in their conduct and reporting.

The important thing for me is knowing they are operating and advising always, with my best interests at heart… this is not something that I can say about many in the industry I have dealt with.

I will continue to use Buildingwise and have no hesitation in recommending them.
