overseeing of construction works

Direction d’Exécution des Travaux (DET) : Vérification des documents d’exécution ainsi que les ouvrages en cours.

I don't know if there would be anything to be gained by talking about the documents, presumably overseeing would include inspecting these.

There is also a translation on the site.

Management of the work execution (DET) : Verification of execution documents as well as the ongoing construction.
