Construction Inspection

CASI provides services in three major areas:

  • CONSTRUCTION INSPECTION
  • BUILDING CODE PLAN REVIEW & BUILDING EVALUATION
  • CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT & ADMINISTRATION

Although the three services are similar, they are separate functions.  Any or all of these services can be applied to most construction projects separately, or together and are available on a contract, daily, or hourly basis; full-time or part-time.

Construction inspection from CASIOK ensures a quality product every time.

Building Code Plan Review & Building Evaluation

In today’s fast-paced construction environment, there is more demand than ever to complete projects quicker.  Whether clients are trying to get a building permit in Los Angeles or Mayberry, things can be missed when producing a set of construction documents.  Third party plan reviews have been proven to uncover those “gotcha’s” that take you back to the drawing board.  Construction Administrative Services, Inc. of Oklahoma have also performed ICC existing building evaluations for renovations or change of occupancy. The Oklahoma construction administrative firm is a member of the International Code Counsel (ICC).

Pre-construction, CASIOK experts start planning from a managerial and economic standpoint.

  • CASIOK can assist the Owner and Design Team with feasibility and constructability studies.  They can also assist in the “Site Adapt” process -  coordinating with the Civil Engineer and coordinating utilities needed for project.
  • With ICC Certified Building Officials on staff, CASIOK has helped clients by catching potential code corrections before the building permit application.  The less your project gets bogged down in the plan review process, the quicker you can build.  CASIOK also offers Permit Expediting.
  • CASIOK attends pre-construction and even pre-bid conferences as an Owner’s Representative.

 During construction, CASIOK keeps tabs on construction.

  • CASIOK offers jobsite visits to field verify building code compliance (also see Construction Inspection).

Construction Management & Administration

Although there is a fine line between a Construction Manager and a General Contractor, there is a line.  Simply put, the agency Construction Manager, or CM works for clients, the Owner and manages the subcontractors, who also work for clients.  The General Contractor, or GC works for himself and manages the subcontractors, who also work for him.  Construction Administrative Services Inc. of Oklahoma offers only agency CM services, because of the obvious benefits to the client,  the Owner.
