Municipalities and governmental agencies are the driving force behind a vast amount of engineering and construction projects throughout the nation. From city buildings to public housing, state schools to ports and transit stations, governmental agencies and municipalities are constantly working to provide the services, infrastructure, and resources that their citizens need for a good quality of life. To do this it is common for these agencies to employ the services of private engineering firms like Fittz & Shipman.
Special Considerations for Governmental and Municipal Clients
Governmental and municipal projects are often subject to heightened regulation since they are funded with public money. There is typically a very structured protocol for bidding and negotiations, approving contractors and subcontractors, making any change orders, and carefully monitoring expenditures. It is crucial that the engineering firm working on the project follow all necessary governmental or municipal specifications and that they document everything very carefully and very thoroughly.
