Prairie Highlands Corporate Park is a 440-acre development along the thriving I-94 corridor that will feature manufacturing, technology and health care facilities, as well as space for offices and other commercial developments. Some of the corporate park’s tenants include Advocate Aurora Health Care, HARIBO of America and Nexus Pharmaceuticals. The client selected raSmith to provide construction services as well as UAS (drone) services for inspection and survey verification for this major development.
As part of our construction services, raSmith is performing project management, daily observation and record drawings, ensuring the work is being completed to project specifications. Management of the $18 million project included daily coordination with the contractor, RFIs, submittal review, pay requests and change orders. Our site construction staff performed daily observations on all aspects of the project such as grading certification, utility installation, and bridge and roadway installation. All work was recorded on Daily Reports and Quantity tracking software.
Additionally, the team provided survey operations, verifying that the grading operations across the entire site and ponds are being completed according to plan and certified. Our scope of services also includes conducting erosion inspections, coordinating the material testing subconsultant and creating construction record drawings for the public utilities.
