The Construction Management mission is to deliver the highest quality and finest workmanship to the public.
Our Resident Engineers (RE) ensure that all public works infrastructure facilities are built in conformance to our contract requirements and public work standards. Our Inspectors monitor daily construction progress and quality of materials and workmanship. Safety is always the primary focus. Inspectors identify conflicts or change of conditions and report them to the RE. Inspectors record daily activities and prepare work reports and estimates of completed work for monthly contractor progress payments.
