Additionally, there are often opportunities to change or even value engineer the design. As such, we see the construction phase as almost an extension of the design phase with some of the final design touches being put in place once the entire team is working together. Construction support services included, but not limited to, are: construction observation and site visits, special inspections, shop drawing review, responses to requests for information (RFI).
