What is a Clerk of Works role?

 Clerk of Works inspect and report on all areas of construction to help maintain quality standards, identify costly defects, delays and reduce risk. They provide valuable guidance to assist with getting the job done ‘right first time’ to save you time and money.

A Clerk of Works – often abbreviated to CoW – can have other job titles such as Supervisor (NEC3/4 Contracts), Site Inspector, Site Supervisor, Construction Inspector, Construction Compliance Manager, Building Quality Officer and Quality Control Inspector. However, Clerk of Works best describes what we do and is universally recognised in our industry.

  What is included in our service?

  Our Clerk of Works will provide an independent assessment of the works undertaken and will produce regular reports and dialogue with the design team, contractor and client.

Our reports typically include; significant points, quality control and witnessing, site progress and activities, commenting on documentation and drawings, comments made to the construction team, defects and progress photographs.

The weekly report includes any site meetings attended by our site staff, reporting of potential risks and the inclusion of our ‘defects and observations tracker’ in which each defect and/or observation is uniquely numbered for ease of reference.
