We also employ best management practices for construction observation:

  • Daily quantity agreement with the Contractor (where practical)
  • Use of e-construction technology such as:
    • Tablets to photo
    • Document and transmit information requisite for proper documentation of contract quantities
    • Materials certification and conformance with the plans and specifications
