Construction Coordination

We help coordinate the construction, renovation and repair projects of outside contractors and our own construction shops. To ensure quality construction projects, we manage schedules, budgets, payments, and required testing and inspections. In addition, we oversee contractor performance for compliance with construction documents, the approved schedule, quality of workmanship, quality and quantity of materials, and construction industry standards. We also maintain files and records of construction projects.
