Identify all design professionals and specialists, in conjunction with the builder, from whom certificates are required.
Identify all required certificates and obtain them.
Coordinate and collate all compliance certification in conjunction with the builder.
In consultation with the design team, plan and oversee the implementation of the Inspection Plan during construction.
Prepare Preliminary Inspection Plan; oversee adherence to this plan, and on completion, provide Inspection Plan as implemented.
On termination/relinquishment of their appointment, make available all certification prepared and inspection reports conducted to the building owner.
Act as the single point of contact with the BCA during construction.
Seek advice from the BCA, in respect of compliance matters relating to the building or works where disputes/differences of opinion arise between parties to the project.
