7.1 Provide any further information if needed to enable the Sub-Contractor to prepare Installation Drawings.
7.2 Examine the Sub-contractor’s proposals for the execution of the Works, provided these reflect upon the design intent. Advise the design team as necessary.
7.3 Collaborate with other members of the design team in resolving any problems.
which may arise from the Sub-Contractors Installation Drawings.
7.4 Make such visits to the site as necessary to ensure that the Works are executed generally according to designs and specifications, and in accordance with good engineering practice. (For this type of project, fortnightly visits should be adequate).
7.5 Advise the design team for the need to vary any part of the project for any reason relating the Works.
7.6 Measure, assess or agree with the Sub-Contractor the value of any variations to the works.
7.7 Provide technical information to the Quantity Surveyor to enable Interim Valuations of the Works to be made and certificates issued.
7.8 Value and advise the design team on Interim Certificates for the Works in progress.
7.9 Examine the Sub-Contractors detailed proposals for carrying out commissioning procedures and performance testing. Advise the design team as necessary.
