Construction Services

The GFA Construction Services Department works cohesively with our engineering and surveying teams providing material testing services, concrete, asphalt, and solid and aggregate testing, with samples collected onsite returned to our in-house lab for evaluation and reportage.

As projects move from design through construction, our GFA services include digitized as-built drawings, bid assistance including document preparation and contractor selection, on and off-site materials testing, progress meetings, construction staking and layout, review and approval of shop drawings, progress reports, change orders, estimates and recommendations, contractor payments, contract management including local, state, and federal varieties, construction observation and documentation, grade inspection, and road certification to county road commissions.
