MEI Civil believes in being part of the entire team. We work with all disciplines to provide a complete and coordinated set of construction plans.
Ensuring all government requirements are met is a critical phase of any construction project. The easiest way to avoid delays is to meet with government officials before submitting any plans. MEI Civil understands what government agencies are looking for and understands how to ensure their requirements are met before filing documents.
A significant source of delay on a project is during the comment period of permitting a project. MEI Civil has over 25 years of experience working with governmental agencies to ensure their requirements are met without costing a project more time or money.
During construction, MEI Civil will still be a vital part of the team. Promptly respond to issues that may arise during construction. And at the end of the project, we’re there to certify the civil elements have been constructed to substantial compliance of approved plans.
