Scientific and technical support of survey, design, and construction as a mandatory element of attaining the required project objectives
Introduction. Scientific and technical support (STS) of survey (STSS), design (STSD), and construction (STSC) in accordance with regulatory documents and standards must be executed at facilities belonging to the KS-3 Class and characterizing by an enhanced level of responsibility. However, currently, there is no clear understanding of the necessary and sufficient volume of work accomplished in the course of the STS as well as of the skill level of companies carrying out the work. Materials and
... ork. Materials and methods. Existing regulatory documents regarding the STS were analysed. A system approach was suggested for forming the initial data array. The approach is based on the decomposition of the erection process of industrial and civil buildings. Specific conditions for the scientific and technical support of survey, design, and construction were considered. Results. Existing regulatory documents regarding the STS of survey, design, and construction does not permit the unambiguous formation of the necessary and sufficient support program. In connection with this, the main steps to be accomplished for the creation of an STS system were formulated. Such an approach will allow all the participants of the construction process to understand the STS requirements and volume unambiguously, avoiding various subjective opinions. The main guidelines of the STS accomplishment were identified. Such types of construction activity as new material or equipment creation, on which recommendations are given for the STS accomplishment, are presented. Conclusions. A roadmap of six top-priority steps is suggested. Its realization in the closest time would allow accomplishing the facility STS on terms unified for all the STS participants.
