Supervision of Maintenance Work

  • Ivor H. Seeley


This final chapter is concerned with the supervision of maintenance work as executed, to ensure that it is of a satisfactory standard and in accordance with the drawings and specification. With the larger contracts it is customary to employ a clerk of works who is constantly in touch with the job, but with smaller jobs periodic supervision only can be obtained often through the medium of architects, surveyors, inspectors or other supervisory staff.
