Peter started a carpentry apprenticeship in 1980 at Kempsey NSW. At completion in 1984, he travelled throughout Queensland for the next 6 years working as a Contract Carpenter on various developments in the Domestic Industry. Living & working in towns like Cairns & Weipa grounded Peter with the knowledge in framing construction in buildings to withstand cyclonic climates.
In 1989 Peter moved back to the Nambucca Valley NSW with his wife Joanne & began the building company Moroney Buildingwise.
In 1994 Peter & Ross Peterkin formed a building partnership called Peterkin & Moroney Buildingwise. The firm quickly became very successful with a high turnover having consistent clients such as the Department of Housing, Mirriwinni Aboriginal Developments, and Catholic Education.
In 1997 there was a market created in Pre-purchase Building Inspections so Peter became accredited by Housing Industry Association to become an Accredited Building Consultant.
In 2000 Peter left the partnership & with Jo moved Buildingwise to Newcastle where Peter became a full time Building Consultant with Craig’s Building Advisory & Buildingwise.
In 2004 Buildingwise moved back into Construction for clients only who requested their new developments be controlled & completed by Buildingwise.
In 2010 Peter started undertaking Certifying Critical Stage Inspections for ABC Certifiers & BPK Building Approvals while studying & later completing a Diploma of Building Surveying in 2012.
In 2014 Peter became accredited with the Building Professionals Board as a Private Certifier & has since approved hundreds of developments & pools.
Peter wants to be one of the best at his trade & fields of expertise in the building inspection industry. His future goals are to continue with ongoing training to expand his knowledge regarding the latest methods, products & building practices. Peter will continue to produce plain English, easy to understand reports for his clients with practical solutions to any problems. He also committed to passing on his knowledge, experience & advice in assisting colleagues & workers in the Buildingwise business from his 35 years in the trade.

Kurt’s goal is to work alongside clients to design the plans they feel reflect their ideas & fit within their budget. He uses the latest 3D architectural software where buildings are brought to life, where he can walk and talk through the design and construction process even if your building knowledge is limited. Kurt believes it is far better for good design over good appliances, longevity and ecological over easy. He is keen to explore ideas that incorporate natural elements i.e.; location, building direction, landscaping, weather & airflow and seasons to reduce power usage.
Kurt completed his apprenticeship as a carpenter and still works as one on some projects before going to study and become a building designer, this helps in the design process as he keeps his projects practical and easy to build.
He has also lived and worked throughout South East Asia, Europe where he has been involved in building projects big and small, he likes to bring tastes of both into his projects.
