At BRAMHALL we offer a comprehensive array of transportation and related services for state and federally funded public improvements. Our extensive experience in projects of this type provides assurance to our clients that their project will comply with all state and federal requirements from the preliminary engineering phase to construction.
The following is a general list of transportation related services that we perform:
Funding sources and applications - our team can provide guidance into suitable sources of funds that could be utilized for the preliminary engineering, detailed design, right-of-way acquisition, and construction phases. We also provide assistance in preparing and submitting funding applications.
Scope of services preparation - because a thorough, well developed scope is the roadmap to successful delivery of a project, our team performs a comprehensive review of applicable state and federal requirements, and ensures they are included as part of the scope document. This minimizes the chances for substantial design "reversals" during project development, which cost both time and money to address
Preliminary engineering - when multiple alternatives appear to solve the problem to be addressed, we review and evaluate each alternative to a reasonable, sufficient level of detail to facilities an informed selection of the alternative to be implemented. This includes reviewing impacts to environmentally sensitive areas, utilities, private property, access management, cost to implement, and rate of return.
Public involvement - preparation of exhibits and coordination with members of the public to explain the alternatives being considered, as well as receive feedback. Our team can articulately explain the ideas under consideration in non-engineering language, so the public can comprehend the pros and cons to each alternative.
Public agency deliverables - in addition to construction plans and bid documents, there are many other components that are required prior to advertising a project for sale. Our team has extensive experience in these items, including: Design Exception identification and preparation; utility coordination and preparation of the Utility Note; identification and resolution of encroachments, including preparation of revocable use permits; completion of the Right-of-Way Certification for signature by the public agency; completion and submission of the NOI to OEPA; and Railroad Coordination.
