Meet the Family

Paul Connelly

B.Con.Mgt(Hon), MAIB, WA Builders Reg. 102466 Owner, Chief Building Inspector & Construction Consultant

On meeting Paul, you quickly recognise his easy-going and friendly character. But once he gets to work, you can trust he means business.

Paul, and his lovely wife Karin, established Red Earth Building Inspections in 2017. His experience includes 20 years in the commercial and residential construction industries, with his background in project and site management, design coordination, and construction management.

This experience, along with the thousands of property inspections he has completed since starting Red Earth, gives him unprecedented knowledge of Western Australian construction techniques, and common (and not so common) building defects.

He enjoys and is passionate about what he does, is a good communicator, and genuinely loves houses and the built environment. His straightforward, informative, and professional approach makes what can often be a stressful experience easy and positive.

With Paul’s ability to connect you with his trusted trade network, you can move forward without the stress of finding someone equally trusted, experienced and capable, who will do the job right.
