In Italy, contruction site supervision is enforced by NTC 2008, the current Italian Building Code, and entails different tasks and responsibilities.
In ECSD, this activity is entirely carried out by skilled staff under the direct supervison of Prof. Franco Mola. The main responsibility of the construction site supervisor is to make sure that as-built object is totally compliant with the design specifications and that the administrative procedures implemented on-site are compliant with the requirements by the Law.
In Italy, as for structural elements, the quality control protocols are designed according to D.lgs. n.163/2006, D.P.R. n. 207/2010 and D.M. n. 145/00 for administrative issues; as for technical structural safety on-site testing protocols, the NTC 2008 are the reference documents. The new guidelines provided by UNI13670 are also a useful reference document used by the ECSD staff to design and interpret experimental tests on structural elements and materials.
