Third Party Coordination

At BA we believe the key to successful third-party coordination is clear communication. It is essential to communicate the right information to the right people early and often. In addition, project knowledge and understanding provides the foresight that is critical for identifying potential conflicts, challenges, or delays that may come because of impacts the project has on third party entities. Getting third party entities involved early in the design process for review and comments on engineering designs, work plans, and schedules, thus allowing for the early addressing of conflicts, adjusting of work plans, and identifying of scheduling conflicts, will provide for a more efficiently and effectively run project.  In addition, thoroughly understanding third party protocols, procedures, and processes will help to avoid delays that would negatively impact project schedules and budgets.

Working hand in hand with the utility companies, we will rely on our experience and relationships to guide our clients through the coordination process taking into consideration the goals of schedule and budget—from the clients prospective and the utility company’s prospective.
