We leave you with a solid budget and a maintenance plan with practical, achievable objectives.
Our services include road operations and maintenance, auditing, contract administration, development approvals, and assistance with stakeholder relationships.

Alternate Procurement Management: We evaluate and implement conventional and alternate procurement strategies on projects ranging from artificial or synthetic turf sports fields to highway interchanges.
Scope Management: We ensure your project scope is clear and concise. If you are still developing your scope, we can help you refine it prior to project initiation, to make sure your project gets off on the right foot.
Project Cost Management: Successful cost management is critical to our projects. We recognize the importance of accurate cost estimating, budgeting, and management and have established thorough cost control processes to deliver projects on-budget for our clients.
Project Schedule Management: Working with the stakeholders and project team, we develop schedules to ensure critical activities and milestone dates are defined. Schedules help identify the critical path and ensure the project is delivered in a logical manner within realistic time frames.
Project Risk Management: Project risks are uncertain events that can have a negative or positive effect on project objectives. Our Risk Management processes involve close interaction with you and project stakeholders to identify your risk tolerance, and acceptable risk thresholds. We develop a risk management strategy to mitigate any negative consequences that may occur throughout your project.
