About us

Building advice that stands the test of time

Formiga1 are building surveyors, consultants and certifiers who set the standard for quality and safety throughout Australia. We are a multi-disciplinary company who pride ourselves on our customer service excellence, professionalism, knowledge and attention to detail. Established in 1993, we've built a reputation for being an authority in building approvals and legislation.

Our team consists of industry leaders, and we specialise in commercial, aged care, industrial, retail and medical facilities. If you want the job done right the first time, every time - call Formiga1.

We’ll work with you from the ground up

We offer quality, customised advice, specific to your project. When engaged, we don't just recite legislations ad hoc. We look at each project holistically, starting with a preliminary review, checking your plans against both state and federal laws, and guiding you through the legal minefield.

During and after construction, we ensure that the building is intrinsically safe; providing regular inspections, ensuring your building meets all building requirements, not just by law, but also the individual statutes and codes relative to your industry. By engaging in early design phases, we provide solutions to improve building life and fire safety, alongside cost-effective construction measures.

At Formiga1, we build relationships

Not content with just setting the standards in building quality and safety, we work togerther with our clients to provide long-term solutions that look beyond the construction stage. Many of our clients contact us years after the completion of work for advice on maintenance and we're always there when they need assistance. They value our depth of knowledge and our no nonsense approach.

We prioritise building long-term relationships, dedicated to aligning with clients' objectives across the development of each stage of their sites and facilities. By fostering long-term partnerships, we strive to consistently meet and exceed client expectations, ensuring seamless collaboration and the achievement of project milestones.

And ensure the work’s done right first time, every time

When safety is at stake, there is no margin for error. Formiga1 are specialists in safety for the aged care, medical and education industries. We provide expert advice, not only to builders and developers, but also to businesses looking to retrofit buildings to modern safety standards. In fact the construction industry has repeatedly engaged Formiga1 when renovating existing buildings and heritage sites.

We've also provided fire safety consultancy and audits to the aged care industry, building industry, and Department of Defence. As aged care building specialists, our team has undertaken additional industry training to understand how the owners use the building infrastructure once constructed, providing valuable decision making support for designers and facility owners.
