CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT
As a professional consulting engineering firm, we are passionate about the quality construction of all design projects, including our own. We have a vested interest throughout the construction phase to see plans and specifications are carried out correctly, and that our clients, both public and private, are pleased with the end result. We focus on consistently high quality standards to ensure safe and cost-effective facilities.

Our engineers are experienced in numerous construction techniques. This blend of design and construction observation experience provides the owner with a knowledgeable on-site inspection team, able to make construction decisions in the field. We provide our private and public clients with bidding services; post award / preconstruction services; active project management and construction administration; material management, certification and testing coordination; construction documentation; review and approval of contractor payment request, change orders and claims; monitor construction contract document compliance, project finalization and closeout as well as construction support services.

SURVEY and RIGHT-OF-WAY
DGL’s survey staff brings over 125 years of combined survey experience. We recognize our survey work is the foundation upon which a project will be constructed. We are experts in topographic surveys for design projects, as well as the survey of right-of-ways for plan development for use in property acquisition. We use the latest technology combined with time-tested methods and procedures to achieve the best results for our clients. DGL uses digital levels and Trimble GPS equipment to establish project control and Trimble S-6 Robotic Total Station equipment to collect data. This data is downloaded, and the drawing is created by a field-to-finish mapping process to provide our clients with the most timely and accurate information they need for a successful project.
