Typically based on daily onsite observations of construction activities.
Basic functions of ACS inspectors include:
Taking advantage of a design review can ultimately provide cost and time savings as well as increase the longevity of a project. During an ACS design review, our client receives a systematic, comprehensive, and documented analysis of design to determine its capability and adequacy to meet the intended use or requirements.
Design reviews are provided for the following types of project:
A project scheduler plays a vital role in the construction progress, helping to manage time, budgets, and resources to ensure work is completed within the duration of a contract. ACS schedulers work directly with the project manager, consult service team and the contractor to create baseline schedules. We assess the impacts of critical path activities during schedule reviews and generate progress reports . We understand the process of completing construction work, as well as the nuances of scheduling both workers and materials without wasting either. Most importantly, we forecast potential delays, inform the client and help develop proactive solutions.
Primary scheduling software used is:
Estimating is a fundamental part of all projects from inception, through the schematic, design, and construction phases and beyond closeout. Utilizing familiar software such as RS Means and Blue Beam, ACS is able to provide approximations of the probable total cost of a project.
The primary types of estimating ACS will perform are:
In the fast-paced environment of today’s construction projects, ensuring all team members have access to accurate and up to date documents is extremely important. ACS provides services ranging from preparing submittals, processing payment applications, creating and maintaining RFI and Submittals registries, maintaining accurate record drawings, file retention and distribution, archiving data, and Operations and Maintenance Manual assembly.
ACS' quality assurance methodologies ensure that the end result of a project is consistent with the design and project documents. Excellent quality assurance practices will not only help avoid expensive delays when things don’t go according to plan, but they also safeguard against failures or accidents as a result of poor workmanship.
