What is construction project monitoring?

Construction project monitoring is the systematic regulation and evaluation of various activities, progress, and compliance with established guidelines during the construction phase of a project, such as a solar plant, to ensure efficient implementation, timely completion, and adherence to quality standards.

Solar plant construction monitoring involves the careful observation and assessment of construction activities, including site preparation, installation of solar panels, electrical infrastructure, and overall project progress, to ensure adherence to design specifications, safety protocols, and timely completion of the solar power facility.


Construction monitoring serves to minimise the risks associated with the quality and construction of solar power plants. Construction project compliance monitors and addresses problems during the construction phase, helping stakeholders avoid costly and time-consuming corrective actions as well as prevent delays to the start of plant operation.

TÜV SÜD helps to identify possible delays, cost discrepancies and quality issues during your construction project

TÜV SÜD has extensive hands-on experience with construction monitoring of solar power projects of all sizes and is well-versed with the relevant legal requirements. During the construction stage, our experts perform site inspections (continuous or periodic) to review the progress of solar projects against their planned schedules.

Our construction monitoring services include:

  • Quality monitoring

    TÜV SÜD monitors the overall quality of work during construction phase including building quality assessments .

  • Time schedule monitoring

    We compare the progress of your solar project with the approved schedule to ensure that it meets approved key milestones in the construction process.

  • Meeting contractual obligations

    Our experts confirm that the work meets all conditions stated in the EPC contract and that the construction runs in accordance with the approved project schedule.

  • Technical requirements

    We provide a team of experts focused on evaluating civil, mechanical, and electrical aspects. Our construction project evaluation experts also monitor for compliance of PV technology with international and best practice requirements and standards (e.g., IEC 61215/61730/61646).

  • Civil engineering assessment

    Our civil engineering experts confirm compliance of the mounting structure with the approved design (e.g., applied material, surface finish, inclination, foundation, and thickness of the structure). Our evaluation covers fixed, single-axis as well as two-axis structures as well as floaters. Our assessment covers compliance of components and finished work with stated parameters in the project documentation and with relevant technical standards.

  • Electrical engineering assessment

    Our electrical engineers confirm compliance with the electrical part of the plant with approved project documentation. We ensure that all electrical components are installed according to local/ international standards and best practices.

  • technology assessment

    Our construction project risk assessment experts ensure that technology (modules, inverters, battery energy storage) complies with approved project documentation. All components should be installed according to local/international standards and best practices and have valid product certificates.

  • Periodical reporting

   We provide clients with a report of the overall construction project evaluation for each visit performed during the construction phase.


When it comes to construction monitoring services, choosing TÜV SÜD offers numerous advantages. With their extensive expertise and experience in the field, TÜV SÜD ensures meticulous oversight of construction projects, including solar plant construction. Our team of highly skilled professionals diligently monitors the construction process, assessing compliance with approved designs, adherence to safety standards, and timely completion.

By choosing TÜV SÜD for construction monitoring services, clients can have peace of mind, knowing that their projects are being monitored with the utmost precision and expertise, resulting in successful and high-quality construction outcomes.
