Supervision monitoring and maintenance

Apart from two paragraphs on the preparation of the ground, §6 of EN 1997-1 provides no additional rules regarding supervision, monitoring, and maintenance to those given in §4.

§4 of EN 1997-1 requires the construction processes and workmanship to be supervised, the structure's performance to be monitored both during and after construction, and the structure to be maintained. As discussed in Chapter 16, these requirements must be stated in the Geotechnical Design Report (GDR) so that responsibilities are clearly articulated and the Client is informed about what to do if monitoring indicates that the structure is not performing adequately. The aims are to ensure the structure is adequately constructed and will perform within the project's acceptance criteria.
