Construction Administration

Construction plans and specifications do not necessarily ensure that a project will be constructed properly. Effective construction administration is essential to the project, and "sweating the details" during construction can save a considerable amount of maintenance costs over the service life of a marine structure. Coastal Systems International, Inc. regularly provides the following construction administration services:

  • Bidding Assistance
  • Contractor Selection
  • Shop Drawing Review
  • RFI Response
  • Site Observations & Reports
  • Special Inspection Services
  • Payment Application Review & Approval
  • Web-Based Project Management
  • Quantity Verification Surveys (Topographic/ Hydrographic/Video-Mapping)
  • Marine Environmental Monitoring (Turbidity, etc.)

Construction in the coastal/marine environment is unique and requires special construction techniques and the use of floating equipment. Coastal Systems' staff have extensive experience with marine construction, and can provide the full range of services from marine environmental monitoring to pile-driving logs. Coastal Systems also utilizes Primavera's Expedition software for document control during construction. We also use cutting-edge web based project management tools such as Primavera's P3 to track the progress of projects while providing clients with secured on-line access to up-to-date project details.
