Your Solution for Construction Management and Inspection
We know you don’t like surprises on your projects.
We consider ourselves a full-service civil engineering firm, assisting our clients through all phases of their projects, from concept development through construction completion.
The systematic and detailed approach that we bring to Construction Management is one of the greatest advantages and benefits we provide to our clients’ bottom line.
A thorough and detailed methodology is one reason why our projects are typically completed with among the lowest change order rates in the industry: less than 2% of total project cost, on average.
Project delays account for a significant percentage of hidden project costs and can quickly erode your project’s budget if the details of your project are not efficiently managed and your contractor fails to comply with the contract.
We are sticklers for the details, and this has protected our clients from excessive delays and change-orders over the last four decades. It has also protected our clients from having to pay any wrongful death claims by families who lost a loved one on their construction projects. Hiring us to take complete project responsibility so that you can tend to the business of running a public agency is one the best ways to minimize unpleasant surprises and costly missed details.
We provide inspection personnel with the expertise required to meet the needs of your construction projects. Our inspectors are responsible for documenting the quality of construction to assure compliance with the approved project plans, specifications, and applicable regulations.
K&S provides its services as a member of a team. The other members of the team are you (the Owner/Public Agency) and the successful bidder (Contractor). We will assure that all team members understand the budget constraints and the importance of providing quality work in a timely manner. In our experience, this team approach is the best means to assure that the Owner will receive a quality product.
