Inspections, audits and measuring services

On this page

Construction supervision is an administrative activity. Its role is to ensure that good construction practices are followed, that the built environment is healthy, safe and sustainable, and that changes to the cityscape strengthen Uusikaupunki's unique features and status as one of Finland's most pleasant cities. Construction supervision combines know-how related to construction, urban culture and building legislation.

The general supervisor orders an inspection as defined in the permit conditions

The general supervisor is responsible for checking which inspections are required under the permit decision to be performed on your construction project.

  • Before ordering any inspections, all previous inspections regarding the project that have been specified in the construction or operating permit must be completed and any deficiencies corrected.
  • The person undertaking the construction project or their representative and the general supervisor must be present at the inspection.
  • Official permit drawings, plans drawn up by special designers (structural images, water and drainage images and/or special plans) must be displayed at the construction site.
  • The documents required under the building permit must have been submitted at Lupapiste before ordering the final inspection.

It is important that planning and construction are based on detailed and correct site information.
