Construction Inspection work involves ensuring that the work of the Contractor conforms to the provisions of the contract documents. Services include detailed inspection, on-site field testing of materials and other construction activities as necessary, including field measurement and collection of data necessary to submit monthly and final estimates and progress reports, and preparation of record plans showing all changes from the contract plans. All records are kept in accordance with the Manual of Uniform Record Keeping (MURK). In addition, the inspectors are proactive towards achieving timely construction completion and monitor contract progress by evaluating the adequacy of the Contractor’s personnel and equipment including the availability of necessary materials and supplies. The project involves extensive night and weekend work.
