❖ Coordination of Consulting Engineers
The development of construction documents is essential to each project. The integration of civil, structural, HVAC, plumbing, electrical, security, fire protection, IT, and specialty systems demand each consultant respect the system space requirements and component routing needs of other consultants. As lead coordinator, we make sure each consultant has adequate space for their systems to be designed and installed in a way that is accessible and efficient for the owner to maintain after the project occupied.

Achieved in a variety of delivery methods, such as soliciting traditional bids, design/build, and the construction management approach. Our firm works successful with each type of project delivery method. We have an excellent working relationship with many of the general contractors and subcontractors available to Northeast Arkansas.
❖ Construction Observation
During construction, we visit the site at appropriate intervals to observe the construction and verify that the project and all its systems are constructed in accordance with the construction documents and the Owner-Contractor agreement. We review product submittals and shop drawings before their installation to confirm that the products proposed by each involved contractor and material supplier meet the requirements outlined in the project specifications manual issued as part of the construction documents.
