Services

The company provides professional clerk of works to all aspects of the building industry - building, civil engineering, electrical and M&E. The services offered have been expanded steadily to reflect the demands of more complex building design requirements and procurement methods. Each project is carried out under the direction of the proprietor who assumes responsibility for overall co-ordination and control.

Site visits start from 50.00.


Staffing Levels

We employ only qualified members of the Institute of Clerk of Works of Great Britain, from LICW to full membership. It is not our intention to use sub-contractors.

Our company policy is to enhance the service we can provide through staff training and development. Our staff attend courses in the CDM Regulations and CPD courses at Glasgow College of Building.


Controls

The meeting of building deadlines is not a responsibility of the Clerk of Works as such but it is the Clerk of Works' responsibility to inform the contract supervisor of any delay that may occur or is starting to conflict with the programme. It is imperative that the Clerk of Works has accurate and marked up copies of the drawings and documentation and this would be carried out on a daily basis. Any deviation from drawings or written documentation will be brought to the attention of the Contract Supervisor.


Quality

As each project stage is completed snagging lists are prepared for those sections of the works and passed to the design team to enable them to assess quality and progress.


Health & Safety

We recognise Health & Safety as a key part of the building industry. We employ a Safety Officer and all our personnel have attended recognised courses on the CDM regulations. We are in the process of compiling our own Health & Safety Plan for all projects in which we are involved. It is the role of our Safety Officer to familiarise himself with the works and to act in a supporting role to the Clerk of Works.


Reviews

It is standard practice for the Clerk of Works to report progress against programme for the client, or client's representative, thus ensuring a weekly review of the status of the project.


Hand-over

The Clerk of works will make himself available along with all relevant documentation to the employment services personnel, to walk round and explain any key areas and general points of interest.
