Who We Are
The role of a Clerk of Works is primarily to represent the interests of the client in regard to ensuring that the quality of both materials and workmanship are in accordance with architects/engineers drawings and specifications. He or she is employed by an architect or a client on a building site.
The Clerk of Works strives to insure value for money for the client - rather than the contractor and is achieved through inspections of materials and workmanship throughout the building process.
Why Choose Us
Self regulation of the construction industry has failed the public for the following reasons:
Poor monitoring of quality control and inappropriate building materials.
Poor control of work details and supervision of specifications.
Poor communication with client and design team, culminating in problems not flagged or recorded.
What We Do
Take instructions from the employers representative (architect), and establish a clear line of communication agreed by all parties.
Monitor quality control and supervision of works and specifications.
Ensure proper use of labour and materials on site.
Record progress and delays on site including weather conditions.
Take photographic recordings of works and daily notes.
Liaise with client and design team & inform of potential problems on site and advise accordingly.
Attend site meetings if requested.
