A comprehensive understanding of the construction process allows RKHA to administer the successful completion of the project. This experience includes bidding and negotiation, construction observation and recording, testing and certification administration, agency communication, dispute management and project close.
Our substantial design and construction experience with a wide range of construction techniques and methods allows for early identification of construction problems and resolution. This is further supported with a full understanding of building codes and standards. From our conservation architectural experience we have developed acute observation skills. The discovery nature of restoration, preservation and rehabilitation has necessitated this skill to become an integral part of the RKHA approach for Construction Administration.
