Clerk of works

With construction work typically involving multiple contractors, developers face the challenge of maintaining health, safety and quality standards across numerous companies and individuals. RSK and its subsidiary, Pellings, offers comprehensive clerk of works services as part of an award-winning multidisciplinary service, providing integrated design, property, facilities management and construction consultancy services to uphold standards throughout a project. We deliver an enhanced service by offering clerk of works expertise as either an individual service, or as part of a combined service with our construction consultancy and building surveying groups.

An experienced and knowledgeable team

Our skilled team operates across a wide range of project scales and types, including refurbishment, witness testing and new build projects, and applies a suite of management tools to deliver high quality outcomes. To ensure we provide a service tailored to the project requirements, we work collaboratively with our clients to understand their goals. By developing our quality monitoring schemes in-house, we offer a high value professional service, not just a trade based ‘checking service’.

Improved safety

Onsite health and safety is paramount for developers. In recent years, as client organisations have increasingly lost the capability to monitor and control the quality of their contracted services, managing health and safety has become more challenging. Our clerk of works services ensure that site works are undertaken properly and safely. With extensive experience, our impartial and committed inspection staff identify potential issues and take a proactive approach to resolving them.

Experienced professionals

We operate as part of a team of construction professionals which regularly includes project managers, employers’ agents, contract administrators and quantity surveyors, as well as specialists in areas such as fire risk assessment. Our close work with clients, who include national and regional main contractors and contractor developers, and our experience in a wide range of sectors allows us to provide expert advice curated to our clients’ needs. In addition to clerk of works expertise, we offer a range of related services, such as cost consultancy and quantity surveying.

Added value

Our clerk of works offer huge amounts of value with their practical understanding of construction and regular presence on construction sites. With a range of specialist knowledge, and experience in a wide range of projects, our clients trust us to consistently provide high quality services tailored to their requirements.

💧 It's #WorldWetlandsDay, which aims to raise awareness of the vital role of wetlands for people and the planet.

💚 We need to change our mindset around these essential habitats and their importance.
