Proactive communication and effective coordination are vital to any project’s successful construction.

GHA Construction Engineering focuses on impeccable documentation, a firm but fair collaboration with contractors, and actively reducing uncertainty for those affected by construction activity.

In the engineering phase that takes all the planning and intensive design and makes it a reality, there is uncertainty that can be mitigated with the right approach. For contractor and material accuracy and compliance, our trained eye and reliable processes match the high level of performance sought by project owners when seeking the right consultant.

The enemy of confidence for construction project stakeholders is uncertainty. The actual inconvenience experienced is undeniably unpleasant, but what residents, commuters, and the local business community really fears is not knowing what is being done, how long it will take, and why.

Construction projects commonly involve changes and delays. This is counterintuitive to projecting the perception of intentional, well-planned construction activity. This leaves only preemptive timeliness as the most important tool. Over the years, it has been common to generate newsletters, flyers, and other communications channels to manage the emotions of project stakeholders.

We know that today’s immediacy is demanded by the public, and while hard-copy methods may still need to be included, the most helpful channel to connect with those most interested in remaining fully informed is a project-specific website GHA brings strong experience in utilizing a project-specific website to inform stakeholders about the project and is the most common method chosen and most conveniently consumed.


With our expertise in construction processes and documentation, our field staff can fulfill the requirements of state, county and local governmental agencies. We stay up-to-date with the most current design and construction standards in order to make expedient field changes as required.

Construction Observation

Site observation is imperative to construct a site which meets or exceeds local and federal standard specifications. We will attend all construction meetings with the design team and contractors, prepare field sketches and change orders, and review final payment processes.

NPDES Compliance Monitoring

We have certified National Pollutant Discharge Elimination Systems (NPDES) compliance monitoring personnel who verify that project sites meet or exceed best management practices as stated in ILR10 permit applications. Our field personnel inspect, document, report and photograph the relevant construction activity.
