Construction Administration during the construction phase is essential in avoiding a rework due to a contractor’s misinterpretations of your design plan. It prevents possible construction delays and unnecessary expenses.
We provide quick responses to the following Construction Administration queries to ensure your project stays on track:
Structural observation refers to the visual observation of the structural system to check for general conformance to the approved plans and specifications. This visual check occurs at key construction milestones and at the completion of the structural system. These observations are separate from city inspections (done by city inspectors) and any special inspections (done by engineers, certified inspectors or deputy inspectors for certain types of construction projects). A Structural Observation visit at required at least 2 business days in advance.
Many times, the contractor requests additional information or a revision to the plan based on unexpected conditions during construction. Unexpected conditions require a quick feedback from engineers. Our quick responses ensures minimal construction delays.
Sometimes the plans call for a certain type of connector, beam, or other material, but the contractor requests a substitute. Our team can quickly get a response from the engineer on the matter. (Please note that there is a limit of one substitution request for each item in the project.)
We can review and approve third party shop drawings such as steel or truss drawings. Your Engineer of Record needs to review and approve these drawings for consistency with the project.
We worked with Aakash for our remodeling and addition project. He was super responsive and the price was very competitive. We had a wonderful experience from the beginning to the end. The entire team was very responsive and fast responding, helping and making the changes the city requested. I will absolutely use their service again for my next project!
