Supervision of Works and Independent Engineering

DTP provides services for the supervision of public works and independent engineering of concession projects.

From the review and digitalization in BIM of the executive project, the supervision of construction and equipment to the closure of works including tests, commissioning, and certification of the work, always verifying adherence to current regulations. The basic concepts that comprise this service are

  • Project design review

    It includes evaluating and analyzing in detail the technical and design documentation that supports the design of a project. This review seeks to identify potential problems, inconsistencies, risks, and opportunities for improvement prior to construction. The content that is part of an executive project review includes the list of documents included in the executive project (drawings, technical specifications, calculation reports, etc.) and the verification of consistency and coherence between the documents, compliance with Regulations and Regulations, the review of the technical design to ensure that it meets the specified standards and requirements, the review of the execution schedule to evaluate the logical sequence of activities and the duration of each phase, including the identification of possible bottlenecks and areas risk in the schedule and the evaluation of the quality requirements established in the executive project, among others.

  • Work program control

    Work program control refers to the activities and processes intended to supervise and manage the progress, performance, and quality of the execution of the construction project. The scope of a work program control may vary depending on the complexity of the project and specific needs, but in any case, it includes the review or development of a detailed work plan and a work program with the scheduling of activities, sequencing of tasks. and allocation of resources, the constant monitoring of actual progress against the established plan and the identification of possible delays and deviations from the schedule, the establishment of a detailed budget and the monitoring and control of actual costs against the budget, the allocation and monitoring of necessary resources, including labor, materials and machinery, establishment of effective communication channels between project teams and coordination with contractors and subcontractors, structured process for the evaluation and approval of changes to the project and minimizing adverse impacts on schedule and budget.

  • Estimates control

    Estimate control in a construction project refers to the systematic management of costs and budgets throughout all phases of the project. Typical scopes of estimate control in a construction project involve identifying costs associated with the various phases and components of the project, regularly reviewing and updating estimates as more information is obtained and the project progresses, and with the inclusion of actual data to improve the accuracy of estimates, comparison of actual costs with initial estimates and budget and identification and analysis of variances to take corrective action, constant monitoring of actual expenses compared to budget and identifying deviations and taking corrective measures when necessary, among others. Estimate control is essential to the financial success of a construction project, as it helps prevent significant cost deviations, improves decision making, and contributes to efficient resource management.

  • Price analysis

    Price analysis during a construction project is a crucial process to evaluate and control the costs associated with the execution of the project. The typical scope of price analysis during a construction project includes having a breakdown of all costs, the estimation of direct costs, the analysis of inputs, the comparison with the initial budget, the review of contracts and subcontracts, adjustments for changes and modifications, control of performance and productivity, monitoring of change orders, analysis of indirect costs, and analysis of deviations and trends, among others. Price analysis during a construction project is essential to guarantee financial control, transparency, and profitability of the project. Effective cost management contributes to overall project success and helps prevent unwanted financial surprises.

  • Project changes

    When a change occurs to a construction project during construction, it is important to address the situation in an organized and efficient manner to minimize negative impacts on the project's schedule, budget, and quality. Our scope includes analyzing in detail the nature and scope of the change in the project, evaluating its impact on the schedule, budget, resources, and quality, reviewing that the change is documented clearly and in detail, estimating the additional costs associated with the change and evaluating the additional time necessary to implement the change, and make the adjustment to the project schedule, among others.

  • Induced Works

    The supervision of induced works refers to the management and control of activities related to changes or modifications that arise during the execution of a construction project. These induced works may be the result of decisions made after the start of the project, whether due to client needs, design adjustments, site conditions or other unforeseen circumstances. Induced work supervision requires careful management and effective communication to ensure that additional changes are made efficiently and that negative impacts on the project in terms of time and costs are minimized.

  • Permits and authorizations

    The supervision of permits and authorizations in infrastructure projects is a critical aspect to ensure compliance with legal and regulatory requirements. A general scope for monitoring permits and authorizations includes identifying the permits and authorizations applicable to the infrastructure project, from the relevant municipal, state and national regulations, creating a detailed record of all permits and authorizations required for the work, and documenting dates of expiration, renewal processes and any associated conditions, establish and maintain proactive communication with the relevant regulatory entities and supervise that all necessary permit and authorization applications are in place or submitted, as well as coordinate with the authorities to expedite the approval process.

  • Right of Way

    Supervision of the rights of way on a construction site is a fundamental aspect of ensuring that the legal conditions and restrictions associated with the use of land and spaces necessary for the project are met. It includes identifying and recording all rights of way necessary for the project, documenting the location, dimensions and any restrictions associated with each right of way, reviewing the legal documentation related to each right of way, including property titles, easement agreements and other legal documents, communicating with landowners and other affected parties to explain the purpose of the work and obtain their consent for the use of rights of way and proactively resolve potential conflicts or concerns.

  • Environmental control

    Supervision of environmental control on a construction site is essential to ensure that the construction and execution of the project are carried out in a sustainable manner and in compliance with environmental regulations. Includes identifying and understanding the environmental legal and regulatory requirements applicable to the project, developing an environmental plan that includes measures to minimize environmental impact during all phases of the project, Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Review, establishing a waste management system that includes the classification, collection and proper disposal of waste generated during the work, noise and vibration control, water management, reforestation and environmental restoration, and the management of hazardous substances, among others.

  • Security control

    Supervising safety control on a construction site is crucial to ensuring a safe work environment and complying with safety standards and regulations. Includes Risk Identification, Development of a Safety Plan, Training and Training of Personnel, Safety Inspections, supervise and ensure the correct use of personal protective equipment, supervise the safe use of tools and equipment, Signage and Delimitation of Areas, implement measures to prevent falls from heights, such as guardrails, safety nets and safety harnesses, the Management of Hazardous Substances, Emergency Management and First Aid, ensuring compliance with local and national construction safety regulations, the Recording and Reporting of Incidents, supervise the compliance of contractors and subcontractors with security policies and procedures, among others.
