We know how to build things
Whether it's bridges and highways or schedules, cost estimates and project controls systems, IT knows how to build it. IT specializes in providing quality services ranging from large project program support to smaller community enhancement projects. Core services include construction inspection, project controls, constructability review, construction cost estimating, bid review and justification, CPM scheduling, claims analysis, claims mitigation strategy, and construction advisory, legal and litigation support.
Having extensive contractor cost estimating experience, IT's staff has competitively bid hundreds of millions of dollars on heavy highway construction projects, as contractors. In the mid 2000s when Independent Cost Estimating (ICE) entered the procurement arena, IT pioneered the ICE process for Construction Management at Risk (CMAR) and Construction Manager General Contractor (CMGC) procurement methods for several agencies which include the Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT-SHA), The Maryland Transportation Authority (MDTA), the Montgomery County Department of Transportation (MCDOT) and the Delaware Department of Transportation (DelDOT).
Cost Estimating Services Include:
Founded in a construction contracting background, IT has become known for its construction expertise offering a contractor's perspective. We feel it is mission critical to the success of a project to offer construction expertise early in the design process. Because of our contractor cost estimating background, we will actually figure out how to build the project as we conduct our review. Before putting pen to paper or lines on a drawing, Contact Us for a thorough and pointed construction review of your project. We will tell it like we see it!
Need a certified Project Scheduling Professional (PSP)? IT offers Critical Path Method (CPM) Scheduling services using Primavera/Oracle products. Supported by years of construction experience, IT will produce, update, monitor, and review construction project schedules for all types of infrastructure: Highways, roads, bridges, utilities, tunnels, piers, bulkheads, earth moving, streetscapes, buildings and electronic tolling facilities. For traditional infrastructure projects, IT routinely provides CPM review and analysis for initial or baseline CPM schedules as well as monthly progress updates for owners. For larger scale program management assignments, complex design build, or public-private-partnership projects, IT produces and updates design and procurement schedules, oftentimes evaluating resources (Histogram) and funding (S-Curve) analyses as requested.
While integrating a contractor's perspective, IT's claims analysts assist clients in resolving construction disputes. On time and under budget doesn't always happen. Whether due to unforeseen changes, performance issues, or owner directed changes, IT will encourage claims avoidance measures to resolve disputes. But when a claim is born, IT offers proven and professional claims review and analysis techniques to make recommendations toward settling the dispute. Our claims analysts have experience in reviewing Time-Impact Analyses (TIA's) and preparing professional reports of opinion for many types of claims: Differing Site Conditions, lost production, weather delays, etc. that result in delays and additional costs.
IT offers construction inspection services for heavy highway construction projects and is dedicated to providing quality inspection staffing. Our inspection staff carries certifications through MARTCP, ACI, MDE, MDOT, USDOT, OSHA, and many other certifying agencies. IT embraces those who continually expand knowledge and certifications with safety as our core value.
IT assists owners and contractors with Project Management systems to monitor and manage all phases of a construction project. These include document control, schedule development and updating, cost control, QA/QC functions, claims documentation, and construction liaison services. Our extensive hands on experience managing large heavy highway construction projects make IT the ideal choice for helping to manage heavy civil construction projects. In this era of electronic documentation, it is increasingly important to establish and maintain accurate and complete construction documentation.
IT has been consulted for specialized assistance in drafting expert reports for legal matters in heavy civil infrastructure construction claims. IT specializes in preparation of detailed reports for construction cost estimates, time-valued cost estimates, estimates of damages, constructability, and forensic review of construction documentation and construction practices and processes for heavy civil infrastructure projects. IT investigates and prepares comprehensive reports of findings in support of legal teams filing or defending heavy civil infrastructure construction projects.
In these times of hyper inflation and volatile markets, costs seem to be only going up. IT provides Value Engineering and Peer Review services to assist you with brainstorming outside-the-box ideas to save time and money. With many years of construction contracting experience behind us, let us help you innovate solutions to reducing your costs.
