Before the construction starts, we apply for a street occupation license, organize all the documents, fill all the forms (application forms, insurances, responsibility terms, construction coordinators and construction company documents and licenses to operate) and submit them to the City Hall in order to apply for the construction license. Once the construction license is issued, we are fully compliant and ready to start.
The investor must have a Civil Engineer on-site that will operate on their behalf certifying that the construction is running according to the execution guidelines as well as making sure the contractor is fulfilling what is contemplated in the contract. He will also certify that all construction costs are under control and all the deadlines are being met, through accurate monthly reports.
A Safety Coordinator is also mandatory on-site since we are dealing with high-risk activity - this person must ensure that the Health and Safety Plan is strictly implemented and followed through by everybody involved in the construction.
