This project for the supervision of a civil works contract for the rehabilitation of eleven agriculture dams included standard monitoring, inspection and reporting activities. The monitoring activities included ensuring that contractual clauses of the work contract were respected. In consultation with the Ministry of Agriculture the consultant was to administer the civil works contract, approving the materials and quality of the works in accordance with the contract specifications, and to approve the contractor’s work programs and drawings.
Inspection activities included: ordering site testing and procedures (soil density and water content, and grout and concrete-mix quality control); supervising material testing in the contractor site laboratory and in-situ, and carrying out independent tests. It was also to be ensured that all site activities followed the requirements of the ministry in matters related to the Environmental Management Plan. Reporting activities included monthly progress meetings held regularly with the contractor, and carrying out five inspections during the defects liability period, one at the end of each period.
