As part of the CA services provided, we include site observation visits. The purpose of this process allows for a third party to visually inspect and observe the construction process.

Requests for Information (RFI’s) are the legal avenue for the contractor to ask questions regarding the contract documents provided. Occasionally, information has been omitted or is simply difficult to understand. Answering RFI’s in a timely fashion helps the contractor sty on time and on budget - which is good for you.
Submittals are a way to verify you get what you pay for. The contractor issues a document of what they intend to purchase to then install on the project. Having a licensed second set of eyes review this information ensures the design maintains the aesthetic envisioned gets built.
