Nachweisarbeiten

English translation: authorities engineering

GLOSSARY ENTRY (DERIVED FROM QUESTION BELOW)
German term or phrase:Nachweisarbeiten
English translation:authorities engineering
Entered by: Anthony Frey

German to English translations [PRO]
Tech/Engineering
German term or phrase: Nachweisarbeiten
Context: Erweiterung F&E Gebäude
The Roharbeiten include the following sub-categories:
Baustelleneinrichtung, Verbauten, Erdarbeiten, Entwässerung, Stahlbeton, Mauerwerk, Abdichtungen, Betonfertigwandpl., Nachweisarbeiten

The only thing I can think of is work involving inspection and verification of compliance with codes - but I'm not sure that is what is meant.
Any help much appreciated.

Maybe- authorities engineering
Explanation:
It sounds like the obligation to obtain licenses, approval, etc. for starting work. Again this is what this American engineering company used for "conferring with local authorities to obtain, licenses/permits/approval, etc."

Hopes this helps!

certification works


Explanation:
I would go for this. In almost all larger buildings today, various infrastructure parts must be certified by outside gancies or companies, so that they comply with regulations. i.e. the contarctor must bring the "Nachweis" (proof) that he is complying.

Work requiring inspection and approval


Explanation:
I feel certain that the above is meant, and I don't think you will find as concise an expression in English as 'Nachweisarbeiten'.
