ACTUS has the manpower, expertise and resources needed to successfully complete any project, large or small. Our ability to mobilize has enabled us to build strong relationships with well-known national and local clients that have relied on ACTUS's consistent commitment to service, regardless of the project's location.
ACTUS has considered our team members existing and projected workloads, and our offices depth's of staffing and other resources before deciding to submit on this opportunity. We believe our project team has the ability to rapidly and systematically consult and perform work with little or no notice. We are committing that the staff identified in this response will actually perform the assigned work.
In engineering, each project has its own set of circumstances and challenges. At ACTUS, we believe the best way to address each task is to start with a clear understanding of the client's directive. We then utilize the experience of a well-rounded team of professionals to meet each objective in the most efficient manner, without compromising precision, while maintaining technical requirements. Our engineering professionals have the experience to ask the key questions before mobilization and the wherewithal to anticipate variables that might jeopardize the budget and schedule.
ACTUS has found that this open line of communication during these early phases of the project have reduced the number of change orders in the field, during construction. Staying as close to the original budget, sometimes under the contingency allowance, and staying on schedule in the field.
We have found that a clean set of plans, with additional details on any non-standard improvements, reduces the number of Requests for Information (RFl's) from the contractors and sub-contractors, and assists in meeting budgets and schedules.
Ensuring that the parking lots are draining at a 1 % minimum to utilize asphalt in lieu of concrete valley gutters, where applicable.
Using Rip Rap swales in lieu of concrete drainage flumes, where applicable, to meet the Best Management Practices (BMP'S) required by most agencies, and keeping the concrete costs down.
Engineering the water design to identify the proper water meter for the project in order to reduce the Southern Nevada Water Authority (SNWA) connection charges. Often times, we may be able to manifold two smaller meters to achieve the gallon per minute and flow demands and manage the SNWA connection fees.
