Welcome to Wessex Site Inspection

Construction Quality Control & Site Inspection Services

Wessex Site Inspection Ltd (WSI) has been providing Clerk of Works and Supervisor roles on NEC contracts since it was established in 1997.

Over the past 20+ years, we have provided flexible levels of input and demonstrated value to our Clients by raising issues during the construction process that would otherwise have been overlooked. Such issues usually concern use of sub-standard materials, shortcuts in acceptable building practices, or issues that would have created future maintenance problems & additional costs.

Our team of inspectors are strategically located across the South of England, and use our own bespoke reporting systems to record factual information & provide an independent view of progress against programme. Read more about us



Quality Control Inspections

  • Visual checks of materials in use and workmanship standards are assessed on site against the requirements as set out in the project specifications.

Defects & Observations

  • WSI has a system in place to monitor the closing out of defects and observations made to the Contractor by our inspectors.

Pre-Completion (Snagging)

  • WSI can produce and track schedules of defects / snags towards the end of the contract to identify items/areas of concern prior to handover.

Site Monitoring​

  • By regularly recording site activities along with weather, site conditions and labour levels, we can provide historic information that can be utilised to resolve disputes and help settle claims.

Progress Against Programme

  • By tracking progress against the Contractors programme, we record an independent view of the percentage completion of each activity. This helps highlight any activity that WSI believe to be behind schedule.

Test Witness Tracker

  • A schedule is maintained by our inspectors on any testing of materials and systems on each site. Any failures or non-conformances are highlighted direct to the Contractor and also contained within our weekly reports.
