Clerk of Works

Modern hall interior in minimalism style with blurred person moving downstairsAt Rund Partnership Limited, our team of experienced Site Inspectors include professionally qualified Clerk of Works, who are members of the Institute of Clerk of Works and Construction Inspectorate. We carry out quality control site inspections on a variety of new build projects, including multi-million pound housing developments, residential care homes, hospitals, schools and business parks.

We also undertake work on existing building refurbishment packages for a range of clients including major developers, Housing Associations, health authorities, schools and universities.

Our team ensures a high build quality throughout the life of the scheme. We monitor defects throughout the defects liability period / rectification period, only signing off the making good defects certificate once our client is satisfied that all outstanding items have been remedied. This is coordinated by our aftercare team to manage the process to a satisfactory conclusion.

When potential defects are identified, our Forensic Clerk of Works service aids the investigation and resolution of defects. This includes the full coordination of remedial works to a satisfactory conclusion.

At Rund, we promote team working and aim to build successful partnerships with our clients and their Contractors by:

  • Ensuring Site Inspectors liaise closely between our clients and our own in-house Employer’s Agents where applicable.
  • Ensuring that works on site are compliant with the Homes and Community Agency Design and Quality Standards, or any other funding authority’s requirements, and carrying out comprehensive drawing and specification reviews to avoid conflicts in design.
  • Developing our unique quality control and inspections systems.
  • Continually monitoring quality and progress on the site, through regular site visits and by providing regular site inspection reports. This enables us to advise on all aspects of the works in progress and bring any concerns to our client’s attention.
  • Advising on workmanship disputes and undertaking snagging and re-inspections prior to completion, to ensure that a quality product is produced.
  • Carrying out and overseeing tests to verify that the works meet specified requirements.
  • Carrying out home demonstrations to new residents to ensure they are familiar with how their home operates.
  • Regardless of the size or value of your scheme, we will provide a Clerk of Works to carry out site inspections, either as a stand-alone service or as part of our Employer’s Agent service.
