Construction Observation

Construction Observation

Loucks’ comprehensive construction management and oversight process incorporates construction observation, surveying, and coordination of geotechnical and environmental service. We thoroughly understand the information required in documenting construction activities to prepare for future developments, meet agency requirements for funding, and obtain environmental releases.

Construction inevitably uncovers items which are unknown at the time of bidding. The majority of these items may be handled with a unique unit prices bid. In conjunction with the Saint Paul Port Authority, Loucks created a Change Order Documentation (COD) form to evaluate and summarize construction costs, construction schedule, agency approval and future development impacts.
