Quality Assurance

Our team provides civil and electrical inspection services for both vertical and horizontal construction projects.

The goal of our inspectors is to make certain projects are done to the required specifications and local building codes. Our inspectors have all of the required certifications to service the Washington, DC Metropolitan region.

Public Engagement

Active and effective communication is the antidote to misinformation and potential project failure. Based on decades of leading public engagement efforts, we developed the 3Cs ModelTM – Clear, Concise and Consistent Messaging and the R.A.C.E. ApproachTM. We combined old fashion “boots-on-the-ground” and innovative communication methods to make certain the public engagement process and is open and inclusive.
