Construction Support Services

Construction support is much like taking a long hike through the woods. When setting out on the hike, a seasoned guide can help prevent trouble down the trail. The same holds true when embarking on a time- and budget-sensitive construction project. AKS’s uniquely multidisciplinary construction support team helps clients navigate the seeming maze of inter-dependent factors, each of which can make or break a project.

Our Approach

AKS takes a uniquely multi-disciplinary approach to construction support. Our construction team consists of senior construction managers, inspectors, licensed civil engineers, and certified arborists. They actively apply their experience in safety, project documentation, labor compliance, environmental permitting, erosion control, scheduling, and cost control. In keeping with AKS’ approach to projects, the team is experienced with all aspects of development including land use planning, dry utilities, stormwater, water, wastewater, roads/streets, trails, parks, and buildings. Construction managers begin work on projects in the design stage and are consulted along the way to make sure the plans are realistic and fit within the construction budget. The construction support team is always on the lookout for potential issues that the team can address before they become change orders.
