National Engineering & Architectural Services Inc. (NEAS Inc.) offers comprehensive construction inspection services and a well-qualified team of inspectors with a wealth of field experience and expertise in various engineering and technical disciplines. Services are typically provided by NEAS Inc. personnel posted on-site on a full-time basis throughout the construction process or during specific stages of a project and range from construction management and administration, to visual and hands-on inspection, to field sampling and testing of materials. As a corollary service, our two materials testing laboratories (Columbus and Cleveland, Ohio) provide scientific analysis for concrete, rock, soils and aggregate .
Our inspectors and project managers ensure that contractors comply with all contract requirements, structural and material specifications, applicable safety ordinances and regulations, and other regulations. At the construction site, they catalog daily inspection reports and corresponding photographic logs, and various records such as issued permits, and they keep detailed checklists that document the ongoing status of a project. This diligent record keeping is crucial to managing contractor pay requests, helping ensure that distributions to contractors are consistent with the verifiable percentage of project completion at any given point in time.
In addition to hard-copy records, all documentation concerning a project, including field and laboratory test data, is stored online, with a secure website built and maintained by NEAS Inc. for each individual project. This allows clients convenient, 24/7 access to critical information, serves as a useful tool for collaborative input, and provides an efficient way to distribute new or revised data and other records over the course of a project (weekly updates are posted on the website).
