Construction Observation

Closely monitoring the quality, costs, and completion timetables of the project through each phase of construction will be an invaluable aspect of the service rendered.  Conducting quality reviews by onsite visits and through periodic reviews of essential documentation will confirm that the general contractor is building the project in accordance with the construction documents, both as to completeness and to the quality of work and materials.

Construction budget reviews are performed monthly to assure that funds required are in line with percentages of work completed and that there are sufficient funds remaining in the budget to complete the project. Additionally, there is a monthly pay request review consisting of recommendation or approval of disbursement of funds.

The following is a checklist of items to be performed on a monthly basis:

  • Observation of project with provision of written and photographic documentation
  • Pay request reviews and retainer amounts
  • Assessment of completion status and calculation of budget sufficiency
  • Accuracy of completion percentages to draw schedule
  • Payment recommendation

Closeout assessment is conducted for each project at construction completion and consists of a final punch-list and assembly of pertinent documents including warranties and instruction materials.
