Construction Support Services

Construction Support Services

SMITH/Associates provides construction support services to DoD and Federal clients throughout the lifecycle of facility planning, construction, and adaptive reuse.

SMITH/Associates provides specialized expertise in DoD planning, programming, budgeting, and execution for repair and construction of all types of facilities. Facility programming combines the science of applying numerous rules with the art of advocacy. Most infrastructure investments take years before they come to fruition; we take pride in our small part of this process whether it’s targeted support at key milestones, or helping a Program Management Office (PMO) over the long run.

As the owner’s rep we provide construction execution support to ensure the buyer is getting what it needs. This can include monitoring reports and changes to manage priorities across projects and users, day-to-day field oversight as the eyes and ears of the owner, engineering reviews of contractor work plans and RFIs, and coordination among stakeholders on complex projects. We also have an established network to bring in experts as needed to help with almost any situation that may arise.

The SMITH team can quickly respond to the need for a particular construction project, such as the creation of new missions for a given installation or the movement of units or offices between installations, or needed modernization or replacement of existing buildings.
