Construction Administration

Construction Administration (CA) is a standard service for any project designed by RISE, but we can also provide local CA services for projects being built in Galveston that were designed by other architects. As the local architect, we will oversee the project to ensure that it is built according to the construction documents. CA services may include periodic site visits, reviewing material samples as needed,  payment coordination with contractor, etc.

We evaluate the impact of these on the project, and assist the client in reaching solutions that meet their needs while complying with state and local ordinances.
