American Water Building Under Construction in Texas

by EVstudio AEP on June 13, 2011

Our latest project in Texas is under construction and they will be pouring the foundation slab soon. Contract Administration is one of the many services which we offer. By having us available during the construction phase of your project we can help ensure that design intent is met as well as maintaining the intended level of quality of the project. One of our roles it to protect the owner’s interests during the construction phase.

Because EVstudio is a full service A/E firm we can process submittals very quickly. Since our design team is integrated we can don’t have to forward materials to other locations. Additionally most of the submittals are done electronically to further increase efficiency.

Main elevation with limestone base, stucco and standing seam roof.

Part of the construction process is the review of shop drawings and product submittals. Shop drawings show the final construction dimensions and methods for thing such as structural columns, beams and other components. This is basically everything the guys in the shop will need to know to assemble the component. Product submittals cover the products such as plumbing materials, light fixtures, vapor barriers etc. It is essentially a final check that the correct products are getting incorporated into the final construction.

Hey There,

interesting project. I understand the advantage of having a fully integrated team within my own work. I have found the internet to be a great place to look for projects to bid on. One resource in particular that I have found to be very useful is Mcgraw hill. Their dodge bidding page is a particularly good resource for new projects. Definitely check them out if you are scoping for new opportunities. building construction tx
