Red Pencil, Limited is a professional service corporation, founded in 2005. The primary focus of the firm is to provide assistance in the preparation of engineering documents that have been prepared in support of the practice of civil engineering roadway design.
The services of Red Pencil, Limited can be engaged beginning with the preliminary and conceptual planning stages, continuing through pre-final and final design, and extending into construction plan implementation with assistance in conflict resolution involving contract documents and specifications.
It is the intent of the staff of Red Pencil, Limited to enhance the plan preparation capabilities of a design firm by providing assistance through plan reviews that will improve communication between in-house disciplines, between prime and sub-consultants and between client and consultants. The client can determine whether the comments provided will need to be addressed and whether further in-house review is needed to discover or address other anomalies.
The ultimate purpose is to reduce overall project costs through a reduction in client review activities, the resolution of design issues prior to a plan submittal, and avoidance of budget over-runs during construction by a timely identification of issues having a potential impact on scheduled activities.
