|Engineering / Construction|
The Engineering and Construction Management Group (ECM), which was previously referred to as Program Management and now includes the majority of our operations that were formerly included in our National Security business Group, performs Title I Design Services, Title II Construction Management Services, and Title III Construction Services, which are discussed further below. The ECM Group also provides other related engineering and construction type services both in the United States and internationally and provides national security services in several markets that require ongoing services and support and which have received funding priority. The ECM Group services include the following:
Title I services entails a broad-range of expertise including project scoping/development, design, cost estimation, value engineering, and feasibility studies.
Title II services involve construction oversight, configuration management, inspection, job site evaluations, and construction documentation among other areas. Other related services include system optimization, scheduling, and quality assurance/control.
Title III services are the actual construction services. Staff members in this business segment also hold security clearances enabling Versar to provide services for classified construction efforts. This segment consists of federal, state, local, international, and commercial clients. Examples of federal work include construction and construction management services for the U.S. Air Force, construction management and personal services including electrical and engineering support to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, project and construction management services for the District of Columbia Courts, and other construction efforts. Work has also been concentrated in the local/municipal marketplace where we manage and construct water and wastewater infrastructure projects.
This business segment also continues to expand its business line via the pursuit of commercial and government projects related to telecommunication integration. The segment maintains joint relationships with several firms designed to enhance our pursuit of telecommunications related technologies and infrastructure.
In addition, this segment continues to pursue the development of opportunities in energy/green initiatives in conjunction with the Environmental Services business segment.
We provide to first responders a Disposable Toxicological Agent Protective System ("DTAPS®") Level B coverall chemical/biological protective suit, which is the first in the industry to be certified by the Safety Equipment Institute to the National Fire Protection Association Class 2 standards.
In addition, we own and operate the only declared Schedule I chemical agent laboratory in the United States under the Chemical Weapons Convention, which is overseen by the Department of Commerce. The laboratory provides cost-effective materials testing services to the U.S. Government and to private industries, particularly manufacturers of chemical protective equipment and clothing.
