In relation to the complexity of the structure and the type of construction it is necessary to appoint a supervisor.

A supervisor is a legal or natural person that exercises supervision of construction as a participant in the construction of works. If the supervisor does not have available their own certified architects and engineers of the relevant professions with appropriate expertise and experience for the type of the structure and the type of the works, they must conclude a contract with another supervisor who has available such certified architects and engineers.

Only a legal or natural person that does not act as a contractor in the same construction and has no business relationship with the contractor may act as a supervisor on the market.

The supervisor must designate a certified architect or engineer from the profession that, according the type of works, dominates in this regard, as head of supervision. The head of supervision exercises and coordinates the supervision of the whole construction.

The experts carrying out the tasks of supervision are as follows:

  • certified architects (PA)
  • certified landscape planner (PKa)
  • certified spatial planner (PPN)
  • certified engineer (PI)
  • responsible supervisor – the title acquired under the Construction Act (Zakon o graditvi objektov - ZGO-1)

Only a person who, in the context of construction of the same structure, does not act as an expert performing the tasks of the works manager on behalf of the contractor, or another person performing other tasks of the contractor, may act as a expert performing the tasks of supervision on behalf of the supervisor.

The supervisor may not modify the design documents unless they also act as the project designer for the same structure.
