Current Issues in Procurement of Architectural, Engineering, and Construction Management Services

whitePaper | February 19, 2020

Government Code Sections 4525 define a qualifications-based selection process where public entities may consider the price of proposed services in the procurement. This process was previously a three-step process starting with advertising for statements of qualifications, then developing a short list, and then requesting proposals from the short list to include resumes, comments on the contract, and price considerations if relevant; but is now often a four-step process, with the last step of negotiating sequentially with the most qualified firms.

Top 6 Tips for Faster Smarter Civil Engineering Calculation Sheets

whitePaper | October 17, 2022

Engineering calculations are at the heart of civil engineering design. The calculation sheets that accompany a project can provide evidence of the design competency and that the specifications are met. Common building calculations are formalized in design guides, such as Eurocodes, AASHTO, IBC etc. The equations tend to be mathematically simple – only needing basic arithmetic operations on the design parameters – but they still require engineering experience to determine the which, why, and when.
