Building Consultancy Services

We range from Architects, Structural Engineers, Bush fire consultants, Environmental and Landscape consultants who we work closely with to ensure your project receives the attention it deserves. We can refer you to our team if required.
It is important for homes be designed or modified to ensure that the occupants remain thermally comfortable.it should be achieved by using minimum artificial heating or cooling in the climate where they are built. Passive design is an important component, as well as energy efficient heating and cooling systems.They relay a lot on smart behavior by the occupants.
We spend most of our life inside buildings. We grow up, live and work in buildings and the quality of built environment around us can have dramatic effects on our lives, happiness, health and productivity. Sustainable and thermally efficient design, means better quality buildings that enhance our life experience inside them and reduce their impact on the natural environment. we can help to bring happiness in your family’s daily life by helping you to build a healthy, sustainable building design.
The thermal efficiency of a house is best described as the amount of energy used to get desired thermal comfort. Less the energy used to get more out of it best thermal practice. We will take care of your dream home and make sure it will perform best in all weathers. To achieve best thermal performance, we have to take few items and factors into consideration. At Casey building consultants it is our main goal to “make your home better”.
Thermal performance of a building is commonly used to describe its energy rating system . Energy rating was started in 2007 to make all new builds and renovation to a minimum of 5 stars.It was improved to 6 stars in 2011 . Our qualified energy raters will make sure that your home will achieve 7 to 8-star rating with some modifications in your home design.
Our Building Consultancy Services in Melbourne on common building materials used in energy rating.
Insulation is an essential component of thermal efficient design. It improves building envelope performance by minimising heat loss and heat gain through walls, roof and floors.
Externally insulated, dense materials like concrete, bricks and other masonry are used in passive design to absorb, store and re-release thermal energy. This moderates internal temperatures by averaging day/night (diurnal) extremes, therefore increasing comfort and reducing energy costs.
Casey Building Consultancy Services will improve thermal performance of your home by selecting suitable glazing. Windows and glazing are a very important component of passive design. Heat loss and gain in a well-insulated home occurs mostly through the windows and doors.
With good passive design, this is used to advantage by trapping winter heat whilst excluding summer sun. Cooling breezes and air movement are encouraged in summer and cold winter winds are excluded.
Windows in a typical insulated home can account for more heat gain or loss than any other element in the building fabric. In summer heat gain through an unshaded window can be 100 times greater than through the same area of insulated wall. One square metre of ordinary glass can let in as much heat as would be produced by a single bar radiator. In winter, heat lost through a window can be ten times more than through the same area of insulated wall.
Glazing is a key element of your home’s design providing, light, ventilation, noise control and security.
It can enhance the appearance and amenity of your home, providing views and connection with outdoor spaces. You can enjoy these benefits and have high thermal performance by selecting the right type of glass and frames and choosing the right size, location and shading of windows.
We can follow simple principles at design stage, to optimise the thermal performance which includes:
- Locate and size windows and shading to let sunshine in when the temperature is cold and exclude it when it is its hot.
- Use thermal mass to store the sun’s heat and provide night-time warmth in cold conditions.
- Locate window and door openings to allow natural cooling by cross ventilation.
- Provide seals to openings to minimise unwanted draughts.
- The most cost-effective way to achieve good thermal performance is to incorporating passive solar principles at design stage.
The volume of heat transferred through the window is measured by U-value. The lower the U-value the better the insulation properties of the aluminium window – the better it is at keeping the heat or cold out. In all cases regardless of climate zone an aluminium window with good insulation properties will help to improve the comfort of your home. To comply with energy reports U values must be Lower than or equal to that specified in the report.
Solar Heat Gain Coefficient or SHGC is a measure of how much solar radiation passes through the window. In a cool climate, windows which have a high SHGC allow a greater amount of solar radiation to pass through, offering free solar heating for the home. Glass selection has a considerable effect on the SHGC of a window or door. To comply with energy reports. It be within 10% of the set value.
Passive design is the process of designing a building envelope which does not require mechanical heating or cooling. As awareness of sustainability, internal climate control and desire for comfort in our dwellings increases it is important to consider passive design a guiding philosophy for the design and construction of new homes or buildings.
Casey Building Consultancy Services will improve thermal performance of your home by selecting suitable window frames. Correct specification and selection of aluminium windows and aluminium doors can be an integral part of a successful passive design process, improving energy efficiency and comfort of your home.Passively designed Homes take advantage of natural climate to maintain thermal comfort.
Casey Building Consultancy Services will help to get best out of your slabs by insulating them. Slabs are an important part of house construction as thermal energy tends to get away through slabs as well. we can insulate Slabs to achieve better thermal performance.

New Home Inspections
Moving into a new build property should mean a complete ready-made home. Where you don’t need to fix anything. But what if the inside of the property is not as flawless as you expected? Did you know if your shiny new home is fully up to scratch? Reality is you are never going to get a 100% flawless home. Therefore, the main objective of our new home inspections is to make sure you get what you are paying for. During our final home inspection or pre handover inspection our qualified building inspector will have a walk through with you. We will try to find out if anything in building envelop does not comply with building regulations or minimum Australian standards.
Construction industry is booming in Melbourne. It means builders having more work than usual, with this growing demand of housing. This is puting extra pressure on their supervisor to deliver at fast pace. This urgency results into poorly build new homes because one supervisor has too many properties to look after. It leads to poor quality and mistakes from unprofessional, unqualified and underpaid work force they had to employ to meet the demand. They try to save some money by cutting the corners. so, it is very important to have a final handover inspection done before giving final bank cheque to builder.

Building and Termite Inspection
Home is a wonderful place. Not only is it comfortable for your family, it’s also an ideal place for termites. They need food, moisture and shelter from the elements and predators. Your home provides all of these without the threat of any natural predators. Our Building and Termite Inspection considers all aspects of the property. We uncover defects that an untrained eye would leave undetected. We perform our building and pest inspection using latest technology thermal cameras.
Our experienced building and termite inspector says just because you don’t see any pests, therefore, it doesn’t mean they aren’t there. When defects are discovered we will tell you what the defect is, where the defect is and what are the likely consequences if the defect is not repaired.

They can cause illnesses, such as salmonella and dysentery causing headaches, fever, nausea, diarrhea and abdominal pain. Pests can also contaminate food sources within the home causing food borne illnesses. It is very important to have a home and pest inspection before you consider to buy it.
Performing Building And Pest Inspection Using Thermal Cameras
Our infrared cameras detect heat. In other words, living termites in your home. Living objects emit warmth. The warmer the life, the brighter it appears on our thermal imager. White is hotter, black is colder hence it is very easy to track any termite or pest activity in a house.
Why we use latest tech thermal images for our house and pest inspections?
Our latest tech thermal cameras have advantages over vintage techniques used for inspection of pest and termites such as:
Tapping, drilling holes and pulling walls apart: it is an old fashioned solution compared to Thermal cams cutting-edge infrared thermal imaging technology. Old messy way disturbs termites, making them go to ground only to pop-up somewhere else. And,
Trained dogs: Time and again, trained dogs have proven to be unreliable.
Moisture meters: Termites love moist, humid places like the kitchen, bathroom and laundry. Therefore, moisture meters often miss termite activity because they can’t distinguish between the existing moisture and the termite infestation.
Microwave systems: Microwave systems are not effective in wet areas. they cannot detect termites under concrete slabs or through thick tree stumps. But thermal cams cutting-edge infrared thermal imaging technology can.
Building And Pest Control Using Latest Technology.
- Environmentally safe
- Non-invasive/ non-intrusive (no need to pull down walls etc.)
- Non-destructive (sledge hammer-free zone)
- No use of chemicals or radiation
- Detects through concrete and into the thickest of tree stumps
- It can detect termites in moist areas
- Termites can’t sense the infrared rays so they won’t scatter like they do with microwaves.
