PROJECTS REVIEW

This service provision deals with the overall verification of “Ready for Implementation” projects, in order to ensure compatibility between plans and projects, in compliance with applicable laws, enabling:
- An optimization of overall cost of the works, due to an efficient design of adopted solutions;
- Completion of the works within the agreed price range, by eliminating additional expenses and costs arising from project errors and omissions.

The main activities to be developed are the following:
Verifying the material compliance with the program set by the Customer;
Deliberating on the overall design of the works;
Conducting a verification process aimed at detecting errors or omissions;
Verifying the construction drawings and plans;
Checking the consistency and organization of the construction drawings and plans;
Checking the sufficiency and adequacy of the construction drawings and plans towards the Specifications of the project;
Comparing the construction drawings with the written plans targeting to verify the consistency between the both of them;
Assessing the detailed work plan adequacy;
Checking the organization consistency of the construction drawings and plans;
Confirming the location and implementation of the works;
Confirming the indication of constituting materials of the works;
Assess the practical implementation of the project given the constraints and conditioning factors of the site and the construction’s phasing process;
Detecting possible errors in the construction drawings;
Checking the compatibility between the solutions defined in each one of the specialties` projects;

Verification of the Written Parts of the Project
- Checking the consistency between the different written parts of the project, in particular, with regard to the technical specifications;
- Checking the consistency and adequacy of the written parts towards the Specifications Document of the project;
- Checking the Descriptive Document, and making sure it contains all the materials to be used in the construction works and all the conditioning factors;
- Detecting possible errors in the written parts of the project;
- Evaluating compliance with the regulations` requirements;
- Verifying if there is a need for some additional calculations in the most significant project pieces;
- Checking the compatibility between the solutions defined in each one of the specialty domain work plans;
- Checking the information on the services affected by the works.


Verification of Measurement
- Checking the measurements and their consistency with the type of intended construction works;
- Verifying the adequacy and sufficiency of the project planning;
- Making re-measurements, spotting possible errors and omissions;
- Checking the compatibility between the solutions defined in each one of the specialty domain work plans;
- Checking that the measurement criteria is adequate and complete;
- Checking the compatibility of the measurements and measurement criteria with all the pre-set working procedures and construction methods.


Checking the Budget
- Checking the numbers and calculations and the accuracy of the various allocated budget pieces and their compatibility with the corresponding measurements pieces and measurement procedures.


Verification of Specifications Document
- Checking the existence of the Specifications Document and its consistency with the type of the intended construction works;
- Checking the consistency of the Specifications Document to the type of construction works, legislation, standards and technical specifications, etc.;
- Verification of the existence and sufficiency of Special Technical Provisions for all the planned work operations;
- Checking the compatibility between the solutions defined in each one of the specialty domain work projects;
- Checking the adequacy of the Special Technical Provisions regarding the type of construction works intended, taking into consideration the materials and construction methods adopted.


Assuring the designers produce the construction drawings, with all relevant information from various specialty domain work projects, in order to guarantee their compatibility.

In general, the analysis and resolution of all aspects of implication of engineering projects with regard to the Architectural project.
