If you’re looking to partner with an engineering consultancy in 2023, below are some of the most important questions to ask a prospective firm. Read on to learn more!

Why the Right Partnership Matters

Choosing the right engineering consultant is essential for your project’s overall success and longevity. A skilled consultancy knows how to address your exact needs and the unique challenges of your project and safeguard your investment to prevent disruptions throughout construction. Bringing in multiple vendors leaves room for miscommunication, and without a proven track record of success, the risk of costly mistakes is high. To make sure you find the best fit, ask potential partners the following:

What Experience Do You Have?

Knowledge is power, and experience grants a hands-on understanding that can distinguish between an easy build and one filled with problems. To ensure your chosen firm is qualified, spend time exploring their portfolio, finding out who they regularly partner with within the private and public sectors, and ensuring they’re up to the task of facing your specific project type.

What is Your Project Management Process?

Project management plays a crucial role in determining the overall success of any project, but not every consulting firm is ready to handle every little detail properly. The right fit will have a dedicated approach that enables them to streamline operations and manage the communication between all involved teams. At the Krahn Group of Companies, our project management process allows us to seamlessly integrate, control and execute every aspect of your project for superior results you can trust.

How Do You Handle Complications?

Let’s face it; it’s highly unlikely that a large-scale project or development will proceed without a few (hopefully) minor problems. Countless things can go awry before and during construction, but the right team will know how to account for the unexpected and stay on track. KGC’s integrated approach makes it easy for all involved engineering and architecture disciplines to stay on the same page and account for complications with minimal disruptions.
