Steve Lavey

Building Surveying Experience

Steve’s involvement in the building industry commenced on site as an apprentice and later as a Builder and Building Work Supervisor.

A move to building surveying in local government provided Steve with 20 years of experience in rural, regional and urban councils, culminating as head of Unley Council’s building department. During this time Steve also played an active role in many industry committees, including the National Trust, Building Fire Safety and Access committees.

Since joining Katnich Dodd, Steve has become an integral part of the team and a valued contact for many clients, particularly in the residential sector.

Steve’s long involvement in the building industry has provided him with a comprehensive practical knowledge of all aspects of building and highly developed abilities in achieving positive outcomes for all parties in the development approval process.
