We pride ourselves on a strong commitment to quality and customer satisfaction, and as qualified licensed building practitioners, we keep up with the play on all things in the building world so you don’t have to.

Inquest Ltd was born out of frustration at the lack of quality information in building reports – full of hard to digest builder jargon or tick boxes, often with no helpful substance for making smart decisions.

We set a challenge to create something unique.  Something practical, where clients were supported through the home buying journey because you’re not just buying an inspection, you are buying peace of mind.

A little about us personally…

We are passionate Wellingtonians with a love of its many unique buildings and hills, something you don’t see in many other cities.  In our spare time you will find us wandering our local Lyall Bay beach with our daughter Poppy or on Adams current project – restoring a 1960’s kauri built ski boat.

Adam Collins – Director, Building Inspector, LBP

With over 20 years building industry experience in Wellington, Adams detailed knowledge of the methods and products used to build the many different styles of Wellington homes is a major asset. This combined with keeping on top of todays building compliance standards as a licensed building practitioner provides a great base to give you all the advice you need.
