Site inspections

A site inspection gives a contract administrator, project manager or funds (monitor) surveyor the opportunity to inspect the ongoing progress of works undertaken. 

The purpose of the inspection might be to undertake a valuation of the works completed or to assess programme/progress and quality issues. At the point of practical completion, an inspection will highlight any snagging issues to be dealt with.

A surveyor should also be aware of the safety aspects of the site, both for themselves and for the site in general. This should include, for example, the safe storage of materials.
