Clerk of Works

Our in-house Clerk of Works team

We can provide a dedicated Clerk of Works service to our Clients during the construction phase of a project. Our specialist Clerks of Works are expert quality inspectors and work closely with the contractor to ensure high standards of construction are maintained throughout the development process.

Gateley RJA’s quality management system for our Clerk of Works’ services targets zero defects at Practical Completion. This is one of the Key Performance Indicators that our team are assessed upon.

All Clerk of Works carry company iPads on which they can always access the most up to date drawings and specifications to ensure they are always checking the relevant information. They dictate all site meeting reports and download photos immediately following the site inspection. The information is collated in our office by the dedicated COW Administration team. All reports and snagging lists are emailed out within 48 hours of the inspection at the very latest, usually within 24 hours.

This process allows the team to spend the majority of their time on site, inspecting quality and reviewing specifications and drawings rather than carrying out administrative duties. It ensures that all identified defects are recorded and notified to the contractor promptly and that they are checked off on subsequent visits.

Clerk of Works services that we provide include:

  • Regular inspections on site
  • Appraisal of progress against programme
  • Appraisal of construction quality
  • Review of compliance with drawings and specifications
  • Snagging inspections prior to completion
  • Back snagging inspections
  • End of defects period inspections
  • Emailed reports to the contractor and the client following every site inspection including photographs demonstrating progress and any defective works.
  • Stock condition surveys
  • Planned and reactive maintenance inspections
