CONSOR provides a full range of surveying services with experience in establishing baseline and vertical control, gathering topographic features, providing utility surveys, locating boundary lines, and performing construction layouts. We maintain multiple in-house survey crews led by full-time, licensed land surveyors.
CONSOR staff has managed airport projects in coordination with the FAA and proves to be a valuable asset to airport systems. We provide design and rehabilitation of airside and landside facilities including roadway, bridges, runways, drainage, utilities, SW3P, signage, monuments, and miscellaneous structures. We provide condition assessments, load analysis, and load rating for structures and perform traffic engineering services for all of these projects.
Our firm has the ability and experience to provide emergency inspection services nationwide during a natural disaster. CONSOR has firsthand knowledge of how imperative it is to reach and perform a timely assessment of structures to allow for emergency aid, restoration, and assistance to the affected areas. We work alongside of emergency personnel to reach and clear corridors, providing immediate notification of critical findings. Communication is essential when a catastrophe occurs; our response teams are outfitted with satellite phones to ensure that communication is maintained. We are experienced in performing emergency assessments, having responded to clients nationwide after hurricanes, tropical storms, flooding, fires, and vehicular or ship/barge impacts.
CONSOR has extensive experience in providing structural, utility, traffic, and value engineering services for railroad and transit projects. Additionally, we have provided construction management and inspection services for these projects. We have been involved in light rail, HOV, bus, and park & ride projects for various agencies.
CONSOR’s expertise includes the use of alternative contracting methods (ACMs), such as design-build and Construction Manager/General Contractor (CM/GC), to accelerate project delivery, encourage innovation, and minimize unforeseen delays and cost overruns. Other benefits of these delivery methods can include risk reduction, mitigation, and distribution; streamlined plans; early work packages; and flexibility in changing project scope. When used in conjunction with single contract “project bundling” (a current Federal Highway Administration Every Day Counts Innovation), ACMs can lead to streamlined design and construction, increased competition, reduced costs, faster delivery, and reductions in transportation project backlogs.
