About the ABC

The ABC was formed in Adelaide, South Australia, in March 1991. Its members include a wide range of specialists and consultants from various sectors of the building industry. Members provide inspection and advisory services to the public and the building industry for any building-related matter or problem, no matter how small or large.

Services include independent technical advice and reports by way of pre-purchase inspections, construction reports, expert reports for building disputes and court cases, as well as termite inspections and engineering advice on structural matters and designs for new and existing buildings.

The ABC has a Constitution and a Code of Practice which members are expected to follow.


One of the main objects of the Association of Building Consultants Inc. (ABC) is to foster and continually improve the quality of service provided by members to the public and industry in the various areas of building consultancy.

This is achieved in a range of ways:

  • the ABC Committee assessing applications for membership
  • regular monthly meetings of the ABC incorporating a rolling program of guest speakers for continuing professional development of members
  • links with other building industry associations
  • members sharing technical information
  • members sharing their experience and expertise to gain mutual benefit from diverse backgrounds
