Supporting the Logistics Market
Our Construction Verification services enable clients to mitigate some of the ever-present and costly delay, RFI’s, re-works, package creep, legal and financial variations that affect projects by precisely auditing and recording what has been constructed against what was designed. This is performed through laser-scanning using our state-of-the-art Leica equipment.
By providing clients with documented, independent certification of the positional accuracy and content of installations, Construction Verification represents an ‘insurance policy’ against potential variation claims as well as a method of proving conformance to contractual tolerance set by the design teams.
Our Construction Verification surveys include setting-out and floor-flatness assessments in a range of environments – such as logistics warehouses.
Plowman Craven offer a number of independent verification options that look to either verify the as-built condition on site to satisfy client verification requirements, or instead de-risk the design intent through verifying the geospatial assumptions made.
We are well placed to provide this independent assessment through our 50 years of survey experience, paired with our market leading BIM Centre of Excellence (holding BSI BIM Kitemark). We generally recommend either;
To ensure that we capture all elements within the site, it is sometimes necessary to attend site multiple times once key milestones are reached, e.g. pouring of Slab Completion, post-erection of primary frame, post-installation of upper floor steels and deck, completion of first fix.
An example of a typical project tolerance criteria is as follows;
A comparison analysis will be undertaken through a Red, Amber, Green System, enabling clear illustration of whether the permissible tolerances have been achieved, are close to the permissible limit, or not compliant;
What would be the commercial value of documented independent certification’ of the positional accuracy and content of installations?
Could Construction Verification play a part in mitigating some of the ever-present costly delays, RFI’s, reworks, legal and financial variations?
Could a reduction in contingency influence tender return prices and impact on work-won ratios?
