Construction Engineering & Inspection (CE&I)
Robert C. Henson II | email@example.com
Project planning, budgeting, design, procurement, and construction contract administration are key components of managing a successful project. JTC has been successful as the Owner’s Representative in ensuring all aspects of these critical management components are in place and working effectively. Communication, attention to detail, and a collaborative team approach enable these processes to occur in a smooth manner.
JTC’s CE&I team is as familiar with the administrative specifications governing construction contracts as they are the technical specifications. Most important among these administrative functions is financial management. This mainly consists of working on the Owner’s behalf to manage, track, and verify the bid items and quantities during construction.
Our significant strength is being able not only to perform the project management and permitting duties in a professional and comprehensive manner, but also supplement that with experienced engineers and project managers with practical onsite construction experience. A key component of JTC’s broad range of construction related services includes resident engineering and construction inspection. Our construction professionals work closely with owners, design professionals, and construction contractors to ensure quality projects given the challenges of schedule, budget, safety and other constraints. Our resident engineering/construction inspection staff safeguards compliance with design documents, perform quality field inspections and maintain excellent project records.
Highway, Streets, Multi-Modal, and Traffic-Related Reconstruction and Rehabilitation Projects
For over 20 years, JTC has successfully completed projects throughout the Northeast. We are prequalified to provide CE&I services to Connecticut DOT, MaineDOT, New Hampshire DOT, and VTrans. Projects have included roadways, sidewalks, multi-modal, bike paths, and other traffic-related projects. During each assigned project, JTC is on-site daily, as needed, to:
- Monitor proper site conditions
- Verify Dig-Safe prior to underground work
- Maintain communications
- Prepare daily reports
- Document site activities
- Track project quantities
- Verify materials
- Correct placement, workmanship, protection
- Ensure site safety procedures
- Maintain environmental controls
Among the issues that the Construction Inspector is responsible for from day to day are assuring that the contractor and their subcontractors follow all construction contract requirements and all permits are in place. Our Resident Engineers and Construction Inspectors have many years of experience with project management and construction oversight. All federal, state, and local permits are reviewed to maintain a high level of regulatory compliance.
In addition, during the construction and inspection of these projects, JTC staff regularly documents the installation of project components per design drawings, specifications, federal, and state regulations, the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) standards, and Federal Highway Administration Standards.
Monitoring Erosion and Sediment Control Measures
With any project, there is always an erosion and sediment component to ensure the reduction or elimination of sediment into streams, culverts, or stormwater conveyances. Proper construction methods, timing, and the use of well-maintained erosion control devices can greatly limit the impacts of site erosion. Our inspections generally include our observations along with photographs, review with state/federal standards, documentation of findings, and recommendations.
As a representative for municipalities and private clients, JTC understands the importance of quality assurance when managing construction projects. JTC provides each project with highly skilled personnel that are experienced and well-trained. We believe that effective project management starts before the project kickoff or actual construction begins.
