Construction monitoring is a service which provides the client with independent
verification (to the extent of the consultant’s engagement) that the works have been
completed in accordance with specified requirements.
Most construction projects are unique, but unlike manufactured products which are
often thoroughly tested and evaluated during construction and prior to being brought
into service, the completed project is rarely tested against all design requirements.
Construction works are also complex in detail and skilled professional involvement is
necessary for the successful execution of such projects.
Five levels of construction monitoring service are defined. The decision as to which level is appropriate will be project dependent.
Factors influencing the level of construction monitoring for a project are:
• The dimensions of the structural elements
• The quality of material
• The qualification of the construction workers
• The process of building is according to the constructional project
