Project Supervisory Services
While it is a sad truth, projects often run over time or budget, or suffer from mismanagement or external circumstances. The project team is often ill-equipped to assess these threats directly, as they are too close to the issues, and their role may be at risk. Where these distressed projects happen, we are asked to act as the project Supervisor.
As we do not assume a Project Management role, this allows us to be fully independent and impartial in our assessment of any development and/or project team, giving us the ability to inform our clients with a comprehensive overview of the status of their investment, provide contract management, confirm compliance with requirements of the contract, certifying payment claims, program and schedule management, extension of time and variation certification to the project, and generally get projects back on track.
What Does the Supervisor Do?
The Project Supervisor ensures all aspects of the construction are administered fairly and diligently for all concerned. They manage the builder and the builder’s contract and work closely with the clerk of works/project manager to ensure all work is performed to standards, along with ensuring that the project is being built to the agreed timeline, quality, and is fit for purpose.
The Role of the Supervisor
The role of the Supervisor can vary depending on the nature of the project and your requirements. Typically, this includes:
- Monitoring progress
- Monitoring compliance – ensuring specification and authority requirements are met
- Administering the contract
- Liaising with the principal and the contractor
- Managing certifications
- Determining when completion is achieved
- Finalising the contract
- Identifying any conflicts that could affect the progress of construction and work with the project team to resolve them
- Coordinating required inspections with local jurisdictions
