Handbook for Clerks of Works, Third Edition: Greater London Council Department of Architecture and Civic Design provides information pertinent to the role of the clerk of works in site supervision. This book outlines the specific duties and responsibilities of the clerk of works. Organized into 25 chapters, this edition begins with an overview of the varieties of duties as well as the specific limitations to duties of clerk of works. This text then explains the duty of the clerk of works to obtain a small-scale layout of the site before the briefing meeting, and should visit the site, so as to be familiar with the site location, boundaries, configuration, adjoining owners, and spoil clearance position. Other chapters consider the level record plan that should be signed by the clerk of works. The final chapter deals with the relations of clerk of works with other departments and branches. This book is a valuable resource for clerks of works.
