In the 45+ years of performing public work, I can count on one hand the number of times project oversight was provided by a person with an electrical background. Resident Engineers (and I’ve worked with some of the best!) with a civil background typically provide oversight for the entire project. So how do you know your getting the best value for your dollar electrically? Simply put, you don’t.
Moulison Associates provides professional oversight and inspections based on a program that fits the requirements of your project. The result? A substantial reduction, if not complete elimination, of costly overruns and changeorders. Often times, this not only offsets our fees, but reduces future maintenance costs by ensuring the installation is done right.

More often than not, changeorders are a result of existing conditions not accurately depicted on the drawings. Might be that a little more legwork needed to done prior to design. Moulison Associates will do all the leg work, investigation, and documentation, prior to design, to avoid these costly changeorders.
After 45+ years in the contracting business, we’ve learned a few things. Specifically, how to look for the simple solution. Value engineering is an important part of any project. However, when changes can be made prior to bidding, the owner/end user is the benefactor of all the savings.
Bid Package Review
As a former contractor/estimator we know the importance of having all the information in a set of bid documents. The less left to the imagination, the more accurate the estimate. At Moulison Associates, we know what to look for from a contractor’s perspective, and will review and advise prior to the bid package hitting the street.
How often does the electrical design Engineer visit your project? Not often. In fact, hardly ever! The inspection responsibility typically falls on the Resident Civil Engineer. Unfortunately, the Civil Engineer does not have an electrical background. State and local electrical inspectors look for code violations, not the expertise and quality of the workmanship.
In the event of a changeorder, how do you know your getting the best bang for your buck? Our quick and cost effective analysis will ensure a dollar earned for a dollar paid, with fairness to both the owner and the performing contractor.
Many municipalities and Airports prefer to pre-purchase long lead materials in preparation for an upcoming project. This enables projects to get a running start, by eliminating the long submittal and procurement process by the awarded contractor.
Prior to awarding a project, particularly if you feel the bid is low, Moulison Associates will work with the low bidder to ensure they have the expertise and horsepower to perform the project. We will cover all aspects of your project and make sure the contractor has everything covered, to avoid any surprises after the project startup.
As the project winds down Moulison Associates will provide final inspections, develop punchlists, and review test results. Our expertise in the contracting business gives us the knowledge to know what to look for. This service brings potential problems to the surface, and eliminates costly failures which can occur soon after the completion of a project
