It’s been a busy couple of months with a new office in Swan Hill and fresh faces in our Mildura and Melbourne offices.

In March the Swan Hill Rural City Council announced that it would no longer be providing a function of issuing Building Permits due to a shortage of qualified professionals.

We saw this as a great opportunity for the team to increase our service to the local community. Guy Romeo has been our sole representative in the area for the past three years and we are excited to announce that Monica Ellis has joined the team as a Cadet Building Surveyor.

Monica joins us from Swan Hill Rural City Council. Already registered as a Pool Inspector, Monica has only a handful of subjects to complete before applying to the VBA for her inspector's registration.

The expansion led to us securing a new and bigger office location at 7/194-208 Beveridge Street, Swan Hill. We are looking forward to continuing to provide friendly and efficient building permit services to the area.
