Delivering Solutions & Proactive Project Management

CTE Cal thrives on solving clients' project challenges. When a client needs a specialized service or solution, we welcome the opportunity to expand our capabilities and deliver where others may falter. Examples include providing engineering recommendations that result in construction cost reductions, performing tests few firms are capable of executing, or developing a staffing approach that delivers quality while balancing costs. Thinking "Outside the Box" is where the CTE Cal team pulls together for our clients. Specialized solutions have been delivered on various projects including seismic investigations for hospitals, stabilization of hill slides or foundations, specialty tests for asphalt, and unique testing programs for new dam construction.

CTE Cal couples problem solving with solid project management protocol to deliver services that include a proactive approach. Our Project Managers have a daily hands-on approach for each project. Project Managers are responsible for developing a scope and fee for a new project, act as the client contact, attend meetings, and forecast project staff & resources. Behind the scenes, the Project Managers and support staff are reviewing laboratory results and oversee document control. CTE Cal Project Managers have worked on thousands of projects ranging from $1 Million to over $750 Million in construction value with projects as large as 1.1 million square feet. Our staff's past experience provides the basis for lessons learned, anticipating potential speedbumps and providing the proactive support required for your next project.

Quality Control Project Management

CTE Cal has developed a project management approach based on our experiences over the last 25 years. Each Project Manager applies these principles with a balanced focus on the key elements supporting a successful project. Communication and forecasting result in clients being properly informed of design or quality challenges in a timely manner. In addition, support staff assist in the documentation process and tracking project budgets. CTE Cal welcomes the opportunity to discuss your project needs and show how we differentiate ourselves from other engineering firms.
