Field Services Division
L.S. Grim Consulting Engineers has recently opened a Field Services Division. The Field Services Division will provide quality control inspection and construction management for private and public clients. This service will also provide supervision on the projects, review of mechanical, electrical and plumbing issues, and assisting the contractor in coordination so that the projects run smoothly. The owner receives a good benefit for their construction dollar, in that any problems that occur are taken care of early and in the field before they become an issue after the fact.
