DNV GL provides an objective analysis of a project's progress.
The main aims of construction monitoring are to: review progress of construction work against the projectschedule, identify possible delays or cost variances, review quality of work undertaken, verify milestone completion and certify progress payments.
Generally speaking, construction monitoring is conducted through periodic visits to the construction site, usually on a monthly basis. More intensive monitoring may be required during periods such as foundation construction or project completion. Clients may also request visits to other locations such as manufacturing plants or ports to verify the availability or delivery of components or equipment.
Construction monitoring typically involves provision of regular reports summarising the findings of inspections and reviews and certification of main contract costs or project milestones. The construction-monitoring client will typically be an organisation financing a project or the owner of a wind farm under construction. In the latter case, the service is normally part of a project due diligence. DNV GL has performed construction monitoring for a wide variety of clients, in many locations around the world and can support new markets as they develop.
