Prior to this Ken has worked on six different Councils as a Building Surveyor, spanning more than 40 years experience in this field. Ken has attained several qualifications within this time, including BBS, BA, MAIBS as well as the highest level of Building Certifier accreditation (Level 1) with Queensland Building & Construction Commission (QBCC), since its inception in April 1998.
Ken has dedicated years of experience to cutting through red tape to provide clients with their legally issued Building Permits, efficiently carry out the required building inspections and issue their Final Building Certificates… all over Queensland.
In 2009 Ken’s son, Rob Murray, joined his father as a Cadet Building Certifier to continue the family business. On 1st July 2022, Ken has stepped back to a more “semi-retired” position with his son, Rob, now stepping up as Director of AAA Building Consultants.
Ken is still not too far away and is still undertaking inspections and providing advice and mentorship to both Rob and upcoming Cadets within this field.

After 18 years in the building industry and 13 years of hands on experience in serving our valued clients, Rob has now taken over the responsibilities of continuing the vision and service Ken has provided over the years. On the 1st July 2022, Rob stepped up as the new Director of AAA Building Consultants, allowing his father more time to enjoy some of his other hobbies and pursuits.
