||Our new “Quick Course to Construction Inspection” brings APWA’s national live workshop directly to you! This interactive, online, five-part series is led by top experts in the construction inspection field and is intended as an overview for those preferring distance learning. Sign up for each program individually or all five at once for a discounted price.
Part one of this five-part series will cover the following topics:
• Construction Inspection: A Basic Overview
Public works construction inspectors do much more than enforce quality and safety standards and regulations. They have numerous duties and responsibilities including recordkeeping, maintaining schedules, and making sure that the work being done meets the project specifications. Learn about the qualifications—and limitations—of the role of a public works construction inspector.
• Preproject Preparation
There is much to be done before you break ground! A successful preproject plan outlines the contractor’s commitment to defining the scope of work to be performed, assigning responsibilities, and establishing timeframes and budgets. Scheduling and tracking systems can help prevent the miscommunication and conflict that can result in costly delays.
• Communication and Documentation
A public works construction inspector can expect to interact with many different people throughout the course of a job, and it can be challenging to communicate the right information to the right people in the most appropriate manner. Learn various general guidelines for effective written and verbal communication.
• Risk Management and Legal Issues
A primary responsibility of a public works construction inspector is to take a proactive approach to minimizing risk and enforcing the contractual terms associated with the job. Learn an overview of common risk management and legal issues associated with a public works construction project.
• Regulatory Overview
Throughout the duration of any public works construction project, the inspector must make sure that all activities are in compliance with local and federal regulations. Learn what steps a public works construction inspector needs to take in order to protect employees, property, the public, and the public agency.
• Project Close-out Procedures
The final inspection and close-out of a public works construction project is necessary to ensure that the end result is a safe, well-constructed, quality product. Learn about the final inspection process, how to develop a punch list, and what documentation the public works construction inspector must make available.
