While the majority of the preconstruction services are handled by Oscar Orduno, Inc., it is fairly common for owners, developers, and construction managers to contract for the engineering of temporary retention systems that will require a temporary easement, license agreement, or coordination of the structure as it relates to the sub-grade footprint or constructability challenges due to regional JHA regulations or otherwise.
CONCEPTUAL DESIGN & PROJECT PLANNING
ODS preconstruction services can be used to assist owners, developers, or construction managers with project planning when deep excavations, specialty retaining walls, or wall/slope stabilization are anticipated in a project.
Addressing these items in advance of construction is beneficial to ensure that budgets are in line with expectations before construction managers or general contractors are involved. It can save time and frustration when soliciting your project for construction.
PRELIMINARY ENGINEERING SERVICES & PERMIT ASSISTANCE
Familiarity with local municipalities is key when planning below-grade construction in urban settings. ODS knows exactly what is required for permitting to ensure owners are getting the most efficient design as quickly as possible.
ODS can provide preliminary plans and calculations well in advance of the construction schedule in efforts to prevent delays due to multiple design changes and submittal revisions, or worse, complete re-engineering of portions of the work to accomadate the limitations imposed on right-of-way or adjacent property usage around the site.
