AP is committed to delivering the highest quality engineering services. Quality work is the reason more than 90 percent of our business each year comes from repeat clients. To that end, we have developed internal procedures that are designed to continually improve the quality of our work. We provide Quality Assurance/Quality Control (QA/QC) of all deliverables, from project inception through project delivery. Key elements of our QA/QC process include:
- Project budget allocation solely for QA/QC tasks and reviews
- Assignment of a project manager who will be responsible for implementing and monitoring the QA/QC tasks
- Assignment of a senior staff member as the quality control review to perform independent constructability and design reviews throughout all phases of a project
- Hold strategic work sessions with the client to discuss issues, needs, and concerns and to identify appropriate solutions
- Schedule project reviews to review calculations, plans and specifications, permit applications, and reports
AP’s clients include cities, counties, and special purpose districts (e.g., water and sewer, irrigation, conservation, ports, etc.), as well as various state and federal agencies, including the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, State Fish and Wildlife, the Oregon and Washington Departments of Transportation, and the Natural Resources Conservation Services.
