Construction Assistance Services

Bidding Assistance

    If requested, BCE can help clients obtain competitive bids and select a qualified contractor. Specific services during this phase can include contractor pre-qualification, development of a bid list, assistance with bid advertisement for public entities, pre-bid conference, preparation of addenda, bid analysis and review, and contractor interviews.

Construction Administration

    Here BCE oversees the site work of the project during the construction phase. We conduct pre-construction meetings to ensure all parties are on the same page and are set up for success before a shovel hits the ground. We review contractor shop drawings and material submittals to ensure what is built meets or exceeds the specifications of the design. We also answer questions and respond to Requests for Information (RFI's) submitted during construction. Site visits and observation is also provided during critical stages/site activities. An engineer who is good at project solving and thinking on their feet is critical for this phase. This is where all the hard work is finally realized, and the final product is built.
