GUIDE FOR THE ELABORATION OF REPORTS ON THE CONTROL OF EARTHMOVING AND PAVING SERVICES BY CONSULTANT FIRMS

A LITERATURE SURVEY WAS CONDUCTED AND MEETINGS WITH REPRESENTATIVES OF CONSULTANT FIRMS AND SPECILIZED TECHNICAL STAFF WERE HELD IN AN ATTEMPT TO STANDARDIZE CONTROL OF EARTHMOVING AND PAVING SERVICES IN BRAZIL. IT INDICATED THE METHODS TO BE FOLLOWED IN REPORT PREPARATION AND IN FINAL APPROVAL BY THE COGNIZANT HIGHWAY DEPARTMENT FOR FINAL PAYMENT. ANOTHER OBJECTIVE WAS TO FACILITATE THE WORK OF THE CONSULTANT AND CONSTRUCTION FIRMS AND THE SUPERVISING ORGANS BY DETERMNING THE BEST SYSTEM OF INTERRELATION AMONG THEM. SUCH A SYSTEM ALSO HAS THE PURPOSE OF PROVIDING WORK-BREAKDOWN AND STATUS INFORMATION TO SHOW THE MAIN CHARACTERISTICS OF THE PAVEMENT. OTHER IMPORTANT POINTS TREATED ARE COST COMPARISON OF COSTS--- NOT ONLY OF THE PROJECT AND CONTROLLING SERVICES, BUT ALSO OF THE EARTHMOVING, PAVING, AND COMPLEMENTARY SERVICES---AND THE TECHNOLOGICAL CONTROL ESSENTIAL TO ENSURE PERFECT EXECUTION OF THE SERVICES. /RRI/
