Construction Administration

Baltic Square
Point Richmond, CA
Many construction failures and defects are a result of inadequate attention from the design architect or engineer during the construction phase. To combat this problem, Interactive Resources routinely provides construction administration services as part of our efforts to maintain quality control and to be responsive to our clients' concerns.

The construction phase brings all the pre-design, design, documentation, bidding, and negotiation work to fulfillment. Effective construction contract administration consists of a complex set of tasks requiring a high level of skill and attention from the architect and/or engineer. Most projects move very quickly once under construction; the architect or engineer must not only observe progress in the field but must also be responsive to the continuing flow of inquiries, submittals, and requests for changes and payments that characterize daily construction contract administration.

Pre-Loan Review & Construction Observation

Interactive Resources also provides owners and lenders with independent assessments of the design of a new project being considered for funding. Typically, the project will have received a plan check and permit review from the appropriate public agency. Without duplicating the agency review, we concentrate on those components, which, depending on the building type and location, are most likely to experience problems. This review can be accomplished in a timely manner by in-house staff or with assistance from several special consultants. Areas of particular concern include soils and foundations, structure, envelope, roofing and waterproofing, mechanical systems, and electrical systems.

Additionally, we often provide construction observation services for major construction review projects to assure lenders that their projects are completed on schedule.
