Construction Engineering support
ARI’s team knows what it takes to ensure your project is engineered with quality and costs in mind. Working with the system owner and contractor, we can identify the scope of work that best suits the client’s needs. Our team has seen countless designs through preliminary drawings, ESA plan review, issued for construction, and as-built phases. Not only can we produce drawing sets that will be compliant with Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJs), we can provide clear schedules and milestones to ensure all parties are familiar with the cycle times for utility and ESA approvals. An engineering plan that integrates seamlessly with construction will ease the project management demand when approaching target COD dates. If the client is working with an EPC with in house engineering, we have the tools and resources that many EPC engineering teams do not. We can provide closeout services, utility COVER commissioning, power quality analysis, and performance testing to supplement in house resources.
ARI provides owners with the information and technical support they need to ensure a smooth tender, award, and construction process. Preparing clear and detailed specifications and owner’s statement of requirements will ensure you receive strong bids from the best proponents that can be easily evaluated head to head. Once construction is underway, our team can provide assistance in monitoring construction schedules, highlight critical path items, and identify compliance concerns before they impact COD dates. Once the project is constructed, ARI has the test equipment and experience to provide detailed quality assurance punch lists, and performance verification.
