COMPLETION
April 2022

Our work began with a close study of the architectural, structural and MEP design information to gain a thorough understanding of the building. Our appointment coincided with the completion of the new concrete frame and an increase of trades on site, which means an increase in construction interfaces and an inherent increase in the risk of defects.

For this crucial construction phase, Circle carried out weekly site inspections to ensure that fit-out elements were installed as specified. Additionally, construction working practices were monitored against industry best-practice in terms of health and safety. Key issues and progress were reported weekly to the client team using observation trackers and a monthly summary report.

Clear communication, an understanding of the detail, and the ability to build a productive working relationship with the main contractor are the backbone of Circle’s clerk of works service. This approach, which is instilled into our team from the start of an appointment, ensures the highest possible quality assurance for our clients.
