HOWARD CARTER Associates, Inc., has an excellent performance record with government agencies and private industry in terms of quality of work provided for bid documents, cost control, and compliance with performance schedules. The firm recognizes the importance of completing projects to meet the client's objectives. We have developed a comprehensive staff utilization program to track current project stages of completion and monitor staff commitments. This is done on a weekly basis. Prior to committing staff to upcoming projects, management reviews staffing commitments to verify availability of individuals for the anticipated time frame. We have gained the confidence and cooperation of the Contractors and Inspectors during the construction phase of projects by being organized, giving prompt response to field problems, and quick and reasonable resolutions to field situations unique to each project.
Because of our Coastal California location in Monterey and our many years here, we have become acutely familiar with the Coastal Zoning, Environmental and Government building and Land Use requirements, and understanding the unique nature of projects on the Monterey Peninsula. We are sensitive to these issues and are able to respond effectively to the unique challenges of the coastal environment.
