Why hire a clerk of the works?

A clerk of the works will monitor a job site on behalf of an insurance carrier to ensure the service provider producing the work on the site is doing so within scope, budget and on schedule.

Can a clerk of the works be involved in post-construction activities, such as final inspections and project closeout?

A clerk of the works may be involved in final inspections and project closeouts. However, they are not typically used to comment regarding quality or correctness of work and rather the cost of the work and timeliness.

How does a clerk of the works monitor and document construction progress?

A clerk will visit the site daily to ensure there are the proper crews carrying out the current necessary function of the project. For example, they will confirm the structure has been framed, then insulation, electrical, plumbing, etc. before the wallboard is installed.

How does a clerk of the works ensure that materials and workmanship meet the specified requirements?

A clerk does not typically ensure workmanship. This is more of a budgetary and scheduling function.
