Our construction management team ensures success of the project by integrating all components of project management: scope, schedule, budget, human resources, communications, risk, procurement, and quality. Integration begins with Client’s plan development. AISG’s management team involvement with the Client as early as possible in the planning process will ensure a seamless transition into plan execution. Throughout the project life cycle integrated change control processes will be used to hold changes within the scope, schedule and budget to project constraints. AISG uses earned value management processes to monitor the performance of the construction project. Planned Value (work scheduled), Earned Value (work accomplished) and Actual Costs are continuously monitored for performance status of the project management team.

ENGINEERING AND DESIGN
Our design team is dedicated to the tasks assigned and well versed in Western design standards. Reach back capabilities are in place for key areas to ensure standards based compliance and quick response time. The Quality Assurance Manager and the Safety Manager both report directly to the Director ofConstruction under a separate chain of command from the Site Manager. Both the Quality Assurance Manager and Safety Manager have the written authority from the AISG CEO to stop work on the project for deficiencies in Quality or Safety.
Engineering and Design Services
- AISG maintains the following design staff:
- Architects, Civil, Mechanical, Electrical & Sanitary Engineers
- Project Managers and QA/QC Managers
- CAD Technicians
- Site, Quality and Safety Inspectors
- Technical Specifications
Quality assurance starts with matching expectations about quality with budget and scope during the planning and design process and continues through construction delivery with a program of design reviews, submittal validation, inspections, tests and certifications. Quality assurance requires coordinated performance among the entire project team for the completed building to satisfy end users’ expectations. We implement quality procedures, documentation and surveillance requirements that enhance our ability to provide products and services consistently that meet customer and regulatory requirements. Our corporate QA procedures will be tailored to complement project delivery procedures, team configuration and the scope of work.
Quality control is an essential component in the management of each AISG project. Daily observation and review of work will confirm that the project is being constructed in compliance with the design documents. An integral part of quality control is document control. Contractor correspondence tracking, issues logs, RFI requests, and other information required or requested, as well as contract and record (as-built) documents, will be maintained in both an archive and active status.
Our site managers observe the installation of the work, materials provided and equipment use for conformance to the contract drawings and specifications, subsequent contract modifications, and approved submittals. We will correct immediately, any observed variances from the contract documents.
We inspect materials and equipment delivered to the project site to ascertain that they meet the approved submittal and contract requirements. We will immediately reject materials that do not meet specifications and maintain documented material rejection forms.
Defects and Rework
On a timely basis, we observe the prosecution of the work to identify any deviation from the contract requirements. The goal of our inspection is to eliminate re-work. Rework is detrimental to a schedule. We demand strict adherence to the contract documents from our workforce and subcontractors.
Safety is the single greatest priority on any AISG project and is everyone’s shared responsibility. It is the AISG policy to provide safe work conditions for all employees, subcontractors and visitors. To that end we establish the safety regulations necessary to ensure that safe working conditions are maintained. It is the obligation of every employee to observe the safety rules, as well. Employees who jeopardize their own safety and that of other employees by failing to follow the rules will be subject to disciplinary action. Employees should immediately report any health or safety hazards to their supervisor. Any accident or injury, no matter how slight, must also be reported immediately.
The AISG Safety Policies has been designed for the welfare and safety of all to protect life, health, and property, and to provide safe working conditions for all that enter the work area. The safety provisions of the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA) subsequent modifications are incorporated in the AISG Safety Policy, as well as, any comparable laws and regulations of the U.S. Government, State and Local jurisdictions.
AISG’s safety model starts with training and education. Each new employee will attend a Health and Safety Orientation and will receive information and training on all policies including but not limited to Accident Prevention, Hazardous Material Identification and Communication, Unsafe Work Practices and Reporting, Exposure Prevention as well as First Aid and Emergency Response.
After attending the training class, each employee will be required to sign a form to verify that they have attended the training, received the written material, and understand the Company’s policies on Hazard Communications. Prior to a new and different chemical being introduced into any work area, each employee involved in the use of the material will be given the information outlined above. The Project Superintendent is responsible for ensuring that an MSDS for the new chemicals is available.
Chemicals introduced to the job site are listed by the commonly used name, the chemical name, and the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) number. Further information on each chemical can be obtained from the Material Safety Data Sheets, located in the Project Superintendent’s office or in the main office. Copies of the MSDS shall be readily accessible during each work shift to employees when they are in their work areas. The Superintendent will ensure that the MSDS information is readily available in a non-emergency situation, and immediately accessible in an emergency.
