Superior Expertise in Construction Contract Management

Otak’s approach to contract representation considers the complexity of federally funded construction projects. We understand the challenges that local agencies, business owners, and community organizations face while undertaking construction projects—navigating those is what we do best. The Otak team ensures projects are meticulously managed and documented to exceed all funding requirements.

Construction Administration

From unforeseen expenses to scheduling errors, challenges on the job site are a reality. They often present themselves without warning— swelling budgets, frustrating stakeholders, and delaying construction. With construction administration being Otak’s specialty, we foresee and remove obstacles before they impact the work, keeping contractors and projects on track while our clients focus on doing what they do best.

Constructability Review & Scheduling

At Otak, we work closely with clients to review proposed plans and detect flaws before materials are sourced for a lackluster idea. We ensure that the planning process is both comprehensive and effective by evaluating value engineering proposals and construction specifications, saving owners the cost of making changes during construction. As construction progresses, we manage baseline and monthly schedules, analyzing the logic of critical paths so that all tasks are completed at the correct times, in the correct order.

Construction Inspection

Not only does Otak inspect for safe, reliable traffic control and verify the coordination of utilities between contractors, third parties, and utility companies, but we also inspect the earth on which the project will be constructed, and every material utilized. We confirm the ground is properly compacted at the subgrade level and that the site is prepped with lifts, coordinating frequent tests to confirm that proposed materials meet construction plans and specs. From managing stormwater and erosion, to ensuring all proper materials are present, our goal is to assure quality, stability and timely delivery.

Claims Support

To protect our clients’ resources, we remove obstacles from construction projects before they arise, greatly reducing the likelihood of claims. We account for the quality of subgrade soil, for the availability of utilities to the site, and for any nearby projects conflicting with progress. To provide smooth construction, our administrative experts review documents, contractual requirements, and costs, while evaluating contractor schedules to find efficiencies in everyone’s time.
