Construction administration refers to administrative services provided by architect or engineer which includes providing clarifications, recommendations, change orders, etc. During the construction phase, most contractors would require a decent amount to a large amount of clarifications and guidance from the designers. When an existing building is involved, unforeseen issues tend to show up more often as the existing building turns out to be different from the assumed configuration, especially for the inaccessible areas. MKS Engineers provides construction administration services.
