Clerk of Works
“clerk of works. n. person who supervises the quality of building work in progress, ensuring drawings and specifications are accurately followed”
As a Clerk of Works (also known as Site Inspectors) we monitor the work of Contractors which carry out contracts for our Clients. As such, our primary responsibility is to make certain that all works carried out are to our Client’s specification, standards and schedule. Key aspects of the Clerk of Works role include: making visual inspections; familiarity with legal requirements and what constitutes compliance; a robust and in-depth working knowledge of health and safety legislation, bringing any shortfalls to the attention of those concerned; and using all relevant drawings and written instructions as a reference point for inspecting the work. We keep records of all works throughout project progression within the respective Site Diary to ensure that records exist of all Clerk of Works activities.
