US National Park Service


TERRADON served as the Construction Management Representative (CMR) for American Disability Act (ADA) upgrade projects at South Manitou Island, near Traverse City, Michigan.

Working through the National Parks Service, TERRADON placed a full-time onsite CMR at the park in 2018. The project included daily coordination between the contractor and owner, where the CMR performed quality control/quality assurance tasks and documented and reported deficiencies. The project included the bank stabilization around the islands lighthouse, sidewalk and walkway ADA improvements, pier modifications, and site renovations. TERRADON’s CMR provided day to day contract observation on behalf of the owner, the National Parks Service. The CMR recommended acceptance or rejection of work to the owner and coordinated responses to requests for information (RFI). Additionally, TERRADON reviewed and coordinated all submittal responses, prepared draft request for proposals, recommended pay request approvals/denials, and conducted weekly construction meetings and minutes. The CMR assisted with the coordination of project close-out (punch lists, substantial completion, occupancy, etc), ensured safe construction practices, and prepared additional paperwork and documentation as needed including daily reports and independent owner estimates.
