The Control and Execution stage involves the actual construction and project supervision, following the construction process with the plans made, schedules, budgets, payments and the necessary administration to have the project running.

- Quality materials verification and the construction process in general.

Payments for the control and execution phase (5% of the overall construction cost) would be done in monthly amounts throughout the process of construction. By law it is the Municipality and the CFIA that have responsibility to ensure that all constructions comply with building regulations (Article 1, Construction Law). We can, therefore, expect periodic visits to your construction site by a municipal inspector, who must certify that the construction is proceeding according to all codes.
