Description

A thorough exploration of all the issues associated with inspecting the on site building works.

The architect's responsibilities and the extent of liabilities in connection with building work on site is of fundamental importance to running a successful practice. Architects must be fully aware of the extent of their duties and combine this knowledge with the more practical skills of project management and technical know how together with more than a dash of common sense. The RIBA Good Practice Guide: Inspecting Works offers comprehensive advice and wisdom based on years of successful experience.

The book thoroughly explores all the issues associated with inspecting the works on site in particular the architect's contractual obligations to inspect under the RIBA appointment documents and the building contract. It also look at the practice management issues connected with inspection duties, including planning, the role of the clerk of works, team briefing, inspection checklists, defects, health and safety, progress monitoring, security and completion.

A section on practical matters such as clothing, etiquette and dealing with intimidation is followed finally with an in depth look at the likely inspection watch points associated with all the different building elements from demolition to internal finishes.
