Every infrastructure project has a unique set of technical challenges. Ever-changing environmental regulations, escalating construction costs, and decreasing funding opportunities are just a few of the obstacles to consider to successfully delivering a project. The technical aspects of projects are often more challenging and complex than initially anticipated. That’s why owners and managers rely on the professionals at AP to help them work through the details of infrastructure projects.
In selecting an engineering firm, an owner or manager should be guided by one primary consideration: the qualifications of the firm for the specific project. A design professional should be selected by the same criteria that apply to choosing a physician, attorney, or other reputable professional – most importantly, skill, reputation, experience, technical competence, and commitment to the client’s interest.
At the end of a project, high-quality engineering services represent only a small percentage of the overall project cost, yet they can significantly affect and influence the cost of construction, the ability of the project to meet the owner’s objectives, and long-term operational costs. Higher quality engineering employed up front usually results in lower bids, saving owners money and headaches during construction. High quality engineering also saves money over the life of the improvements.
Since 1975, AP has developed a solid reputation for providing high-quality engineering services. Over the years, we have partnered with many organizations to help them achieve their civil infrastructure goals while also helping save construction and ownership costs. We welcome the opportunity to assist with your next project.
