Active Review & Documentation

Construction observation can be carried out by an architect, an interior designer, a landscape architect, an engineer, or a technician to assist the client in determining if the work conforms to the requirements of the construction contract.

Depending on the client or agency involved, there are a variety of standards to be met. Our professionals work in conjunction with the owner and contractor to see that the design is implemented and project integrity is maintained.

Bringing Together Project Participants

Our staff cover many roles while providing construction observation, including Resident Engineer, Inspector, and Resident Project Representative. No matter the title, the object is the same: to foster communication and increase stakeholder collaboration, quality assurance, and accountability. Through project partnering, the client is kept informed of any contractor questions and the contractor is aware of any adjustments that may arise. The strength of a project is measured by the owner, consultants, contractors, and subcontractors all working toward the same goal.
