GENERAL CONSTRUCTION + URBAN PLANNING
Whether working in the design-build or design-bid-build environment, MSC creates a framework for each project’s success. Our construction managers are trained and certified to provide pre-construction support services through scheduling, estimating, construct-ability reviews, and value engineering, as well as project management and inspection during the construction phase. From concept to design, bid to construction, occupancy to maintenance, we provide continuity throughout the entire process.
MSC offers a range of multi-disciplined services to help clients manage their capital programs. Serving as an extension of our client’s staff, our program managers provide expertise in handling a wide variety of projects, from capital planning through occupancy. Using a comprehensive construction management approach, we integrate the different facets of the construction process—planning, design, procurement, construction and activation—and provide technical and management expertise for each project. Whether it’s a multi-million dollar campus expansion program or a small facilities improvement project, our team provides the personalized attention of a small local consulting firm with the extensive resources of a large regional company.

As the program progresses from planning, through design, construction and occupancy, we use our experiences and lessons learned from other projects to inform decisions at critical points during each project.
BICYCLE + PEDESTRIAN PLANNING + DESIGN
MSC is committed to building livable communities. Bicycle and pedestrian work have become a focus for MSC. Facilities for non-motorized transportation continue to grow in popularity and demand, and communities increasingly see these facilities as important to a desirable quality of life.
Our team can design and implement bicycle and pedestrian plans to maximize the effectiveness of investments for our most basic forms of transportation. Many of these plans are intended to assist communities in complying with Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements and serve as the foundation of a community’s ADA transition plan.
Additionally, our engineering expertise allows seamless transition from planning to the design of bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure. Using our understanding of current and emerging regulations and the latest practices from around the world, we can this framework to design and these facilities to help transportation planners meet the demands of community.
