Our construction administration experience includes construction oversight and administration for airport, highway and waterfront improvements, as well as structural vertical and industrial construction projects. We offer these services to a variety of clients including the Alaska Department of Transportation & Public Facilities, Anchorage Water and Wastewater Utility, Federal Highway Administration and many municipal governments.

R&M is currently seeking an Engineering Associate to support construction administration projects throughout Alaska.
