Construction Admin. Services Overview

ZDS Design/Consulting Services provides Construction Administration for all design projects. We provide a dedicated construction administrator to oversee every phase of a project managing administrative tasks, and ensuring the contractors meet the design documents.


ZDS has a proven process for submittal package management that ensures each submittal is reviewed and returned in a timely fashion.

Regular site-visits to check up on construction progress followed up by observation reports that outline work quality and design conformance.

ZDS will review any RFI’s and provide clarifications.

We employ a hands on approach in making sure your Mechanical/Electrical/Plumbing systems are operating at peak conditions.

ZDS works with their clients to review contractor’s work in the field and progress on pay applications.  This includes review of the schedule of values, daily reports, any photo documentation provided, and more.

ZDS works with their clients in the event change orders are needed.  This includes review of the proposal request, any AIA supplemental instructions, review of Construction Change Directives, review of a Request for more Information (RFI’s) and more.

ZDS works with our client’s staff to make sure they understand the systems that they will be operating.  We also develop a Project Manual that captures the valuable knowledge and information gained through the entire process.  We understand that buildings that are not maintained and operated as intended cost more and equipment tends to have shorter life.  By starting things off correctly you will reap long term benefits that often pay for themselves.
