Investment evaluation

I. Comprehensive Inventory of surroundings  of the contract before any construction-assembly works begin.

 1. Wildlife Inventory:
a) description with photo documentation of flora habitats and the attempt to assess any loss of it connected with the construction that is how many stands or whole phytocentric habitats can be destroyed or violated temporary or permanently with the possibility of renewing that particular ecosystem,
b) assessment of preservation state of flora through the presence or lack of withering or species bitten by animals or cut out trees for farm or health purposes,
c) taking earth samples to analyze them for the content of heavy metals and earth reaction and conducting laboratory exams,
d) description of fauna incidence and breeding at the site of projected investment along with photo documentation – defining ways of preservation of local fauna population during the construction works and minimizing threats to animals,
e) drawing up a report together with proposals of construction works schedules at the sites considered as conflicting and recommendation on the scope of monitoring.

2. Inventory of existing buildings and structures within the area affected by the Contract.
a) inspection of the building and drawing up a protocol describing existing damages (or lack thereof) signed by the owner, tenant or administrator or other person in charge.
b) making photo documentation of the building (with surroundings) illustrating its state and damages noticed.
c) drawing up the final report with pointing to the General Contractor all buildings for which special supervision and monitoring are recommended during the construction.

3. Inventory of existing damages in access roads and detour roads:
a) The SAND – System of Road Surface Analysis – rendering the scan of road surface using a laser device with digital graphic analysis documenting the types, surface and level of damage and profile of the road surface.
b) inspection of bridges, passages, flyovers, and the description of  existing damages with photo documentation .

 4. Inventory of different kinds of atypical objects such as : pipelines, track lines, electric tractions, dams, swimming pools, historic monuments and features of natural importance.


II . Continuous monitoring of threats while  performing construction-assembly works

1. Wildlife monitoring.
2. Building and structures  monitoring.
3. Monitoring levels and conditions  (physicochemical and biological examinations) of ground waters and water in wells.
4. Monitoring of slope landslides.
5. Measurements of the propagation of dynamic vibrations with the preparation of expert opinions and the indication of preventive activities.
6. Measurements of noise levels (during works in buildings for which strict norms must be complied with such as hospitals, hotels etc.)
7. Intervention activities consisting of:
a) quick responding and constant dialogues with persons or institutions affected by the harmful results of realized contracts, in order to solving them efficiently,
b) taking stance towards to claims and the preparation of documentation of damages with estimates or the preparation of documentation allowing the petition to be dismissed if unfair,
c) leading to a settlement  (whilst giving the Contractor the appropriate power of attorney by the Contractor) or passing all documentation to an insurance company  (in which the Employer concluded the appropriate agreement of civil liability of the Contract) in order to pay out the insurance if the damage fell into the scope of insurance agreement.

III. Post-performance inventory

Post-performance inventory consists of comparative analysis of changes in relation to the initial state. It allows to estimate the period of development and costs of the investment impact on the environment.
