About me

I would like to 1st give you a basic outline of my history in the building industry and how I became a Building Consultant.

Grew up in beautiful beach side suburb of Cronulla going to Cronulla Primary & High School. Left school starting as a Carpentry & Joinery apprenticeship in 1969 and finished my trade leading onto a post trade Clerk of Works, Building Business certs to obtain a builders license.

Obtained a Sole Trader’s builder’s license in 1976, then in 1981 a company’s builder’s license 32195;..Nosset Pty Ltd’ t/a ..S J Worthington Builders, after a considerable time in the construction sector then In 1994 I decided to become accredited Building Consultant with the MBA of NSW t/a Worthingtons Building Consultancy’.

The last 18 years I have continued to carry out building consulting and inspection services in Sydney, Southern Highlands and South Coast of NSW.  My mission is to still carry on with my business for many years to come. The building industry is evolving every day and the changes to the products and method of construction is interesting and very well completed in a lot of cases but this is not always the case and most of the time that is where I come into the picture.

This new Blog gives me the opportunity to express my thoughts, ideas and aspirations of what is happening in the building industry, looking at it from where I see it and of cause I wouldn’t expect these details to be a good picture rather a forthright view.

Providing building inspections services to Sydney, the southern highlands, and south coast.
