Hardscape Design & Specifications provide the analysis, design, and project administration services required to obtain the most appropriate and cost-effective solution to our client's hardscape problems.  

  • Site Survey:  An examination and survey of the site is completed to establish existing and proposed elevations.

  • Hardscape Analysis: IRS performs a complete hardscape analysis to determine existing conditions and construction.  This includes an analysis of drainage conditions, traffic loads, traffic patterns, fencing, curb and line painting requirements.  Borings are recommended and may be necessary to determine substrate conditions which would adversely affect the new hardscape's performance.  The number, location, and additional cost would be reviewed and authorized by the client prior to proceeding with borings.

  • Hardscape System Selection:  Potential hardscape systems are reviewed and a selection made after weighing our clients management objectives and our analysis of the existing hardscape system.  Accurate budget figures are then established to reflect the agreed-upon scope of of the project.

  • Bidding Documents:  Detailed specifications are developed for the purpose of securing competitive bids on the selected hardscape system.  As to be built project drawings are provided to clearly communicate project requirements.  All IRS specifications are written and designed to provide a competitive bidding situation among contractors and manufacturers.

  • Contractor Selection:  Our involvement with a variety of hardscape systems provides us with a good selection of contractors in most of the country.  We can assist our client in selecting a group of qualified contractors to bid on the specified hardscape system.

  • Pre-Bid Conference:  For each project, a representative of IRS conducts a pre-bid meeting to review the projects scope of work, including miscellaneous site conditions with the prospective bidders and an owner's representative.  This meeting ensures an understanding of the project documents by on-site personnel and the bidders.

  • Pre-Construction Meeting:  For each project, a representative of IRS conducts a pre-construction meeting with the contractor's foreman and the owner's representative to review job-site conditions and project documents to clarify and resolve any questions before the start of construction.

  • Job Progress Observations:  Our involvement in this phase of the project varies from weekly to full-time observation, depending on the complexity of the job, the contractor involved, and the needs and interests of our client.

  • Observation for Final Approval:  Every project is reviewed by a qualified representative of IRS prior to the final payment.
