Project Management

CSMI provides complete construction project management services. These services range from acting as construction manager on multifamily remediation projects to serving as a member of the design team providing input regarding costs, constructability, durability of materials, and long-term maintenance plans. In 2005 Washington State enacted a law (RCW 64.55 – House Bill 1848) requiring third party inspection of multifamily construction and repair. Our experience in the investigation of defective construction combined with our experience as a general contractor makes us qualified to act as the third party inspector in order to comply with the House Bill. CSMI has the ability to provide comprehensive project management services including:
