Construction administration services are tailored for each project to meet our client’s needs. Our goal is to provide comprehensive construction administration services at every stage of the project. Duties may include field inspections to monitor the execution of the work for quality and compliance with the contract documents; reviewing project schedules, assessing change orders; evaluating applications for payment; field testing analysis; final inspections; and O&M document review. Our experienced staff oversight of the construction process enhances construction quality and delivery of the project to the Owner.
Shop Drawing / RFI
A thorough shop drawing review of MEP equipment is typically completed by the project engineer. The review process begins with submittals being provided by the Contractor which are stamped complete and approved. They must accurately represent all features of the product so there is no doubt that the item intended to be provided conforms to the contract requirements. The project engineer will review to verify the submittal is in compliance with the design intent and contract requirements. Unless otherwise directed, deviations must be corrected by the contractor and resubmitted to the engineer. Request for Information (RFIs) is a procedure for the purpose of gathering data to make a decision during the construction process. It can be a tool to resolve gaps, conflicts or construction issues, should they arise. RFIs are reviewed and answered by the project engineer in a coordinated effort with other team members. Responsiveness and a proactive approach is a key to the successful RFI resolution.
Diligence is as imperative during the closeout phase as it is in the design phase. Our processes include verifying the accuracy of as-builts, verification of submission of O&M manuals, and reviewing test & balance data to make sure that the systems are well documented for the Owner’s future needs. Our approach to project closeout is to ensure that the Owner is properly trained and satisfied with the building operations before any consultant or contractor is released from their obligations.
