About us

Formiga1 are building surveyors, consultants and certifiers who set the standard for quality and safety worldwide.

We are a multi-disciplinary company who pride ourselves on our customer service excellence, professionalism, knowledge and attention to detail.




To many, building certifying is ensuring compliance to laws and legislation, but here at Formiga1, it means so much more to us. Our approach is simple. Help you understand why certain codes and laws have been written which gives everyone the opportunity to build the most effective and efficient building possible. 

By bringing to the table decades of experience in building certification and surveying, we’re able to give a rounded approach to all options along with helping you understand the laws and legislation you’re required to meet.

We see our role as helping you understand all the available choices before the building is finalised in its design. We understand the implications of changing a building once it’s built. It’s harder, more expensive and will quickly blow out elements of a budget that could have been used in other areas had the process been done correctly in the first instance. 

formiga1 3This is why we ensure all known contingencies are dealt with, designed and considered before construction starts. This approach allows for a better design, better construction and a better outcome for everyone involved.  

To think that we’re able to help people create better buildings, better environments gives us immense satisfaction in our roles as Building Consultants.


A majority of people walk into a building not thinking about the safety elements added to the structure or that it should meet certain standards, they just expect it to be right. 

This expectation is something that Formiga1 takes incredibly seriously as we help you navigate the range of building requirements you’re required to meet. 

Here at Formiga1, we’re a building surveying firm that specializes in the aged care, medical and education industries. Our team has been trained in these areas specifically and are continually improving our skill sets to help you create safer better buildings. We work with you through the initial design, the approval stage, the inspection stage, occupancy and then offer ongoing compliance advice for the rest of the lifespan of that building. 

formiga1 4Our services aren’t about ticking boxes or creating reports – we’re here to help you, your staff, residents and visitors. Putting safety into the hands of professionals means you don’t have to think about it, giving you time to focus on what you do best. 

We’re quite happy to be the ones working in the background, making sure your buildings are safe and everyone has the opportunity to be in a safe building so they’re able to go home to their families.
