A successful project ultimately depends on the contractor fulfilling the designer’s intent during construction. Schnabel plays a vital role in seeing that the project is built according to plan. We work for the owner, in a resident engineer or construction QA/QC role, or for the contractor in a QA/QC role. In both cases, we are an advocate for the success of the project, seeking to promote quality and minimize disputes, change orders, and claims.
Key to our success in this role is a collaborative relationship with our client, maintaining continuous communication and rigorously documenting construction and testing activities, results, and correspondence. We bring strong design capabilities and experience to this role, strengthening our analyses and recommendations.
Our owner and construction contractor services include:
- Project risk management
- Life cycle risk management
- Asset management
- Resident engineering services
- Claim avoidance and dispute resolution
- Foundation and earthwork oversight
- Construction materials testing
- Special inspections
