Building construction site with scaffolding
I entrusted Dowdy with complex levels of sub-grading, drainage, tie-ins, and a variety of final grading that included sodding, asphalt paving, specified granite and geo-web stabilized gravel. Dowdy was always onsite serving the interest of the project with direction and planning that always put the element of safety first.

I know Dowdy not only as a company building projects, but as people building culture.

HONEST AND COMPLETE ESTIMATES MEAN NO SURPRISES FOR OUR CLIENTS

Trust is crucial when deciding on a company for your site prep work.

A 5 Step Review Process

We have an in-depth process to ensure that your estimates are always complete. Dowdy uses a team of estimators to generate each bid. Every bid goes through our 5 Step Review Process. This allows for multiple checks, while also capitalizing on each estimator’s area of expertise. Once the draft of the bid is complete, our estimation team will collaborate to identify the most cost-effective way to build the job.

That’s why our clients can be confident that they’re getting complete estimates and the best prices. Once the bid is accepted, Dowdy immediately assigns a Project Management team composed of a Project Manager, Project Superintendent, and Construction Crew. This Team will be in place for the life of the project. Together, we’ll make sure that you have a high-quality product on time and on budget.

Dowdy’s experts can diagnose the obvious and not so obvious problems presented by a building site and create a plan to get your project started on time.

We’ll Get Your Utilities Installed So You Can Build

When you hire Dowdy, you’re getting a team that has the experience to do it all in-house. That means your water, sewer and gas piping go in without delays so you can move on with construction.

Dowdy knows how to communicate and work with you using your preferred project management software, so we don’t waste time and keep you on schedule.

DOWDY INSTALLS THE STORM WATER MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS YOU NEED

Water management systems are critical to the long term success of any building project. From compliance with local laws to preventing long-term flooding, Dowdy’s experts can make sure that your project stays on track. We create custom water management solutions that work with your project. Let Dowdy keep you on schedule and on budget.

Commercial construction projects usually have more trouble with water runoff because they have more surfaces that can’t absorb water like large roofs and parking lots. When storms dump large amounts of water on these areas in short periods of time, flooding can be a serious problem if proper water management systems aren’t in place. Dowdy has the expertise to protect your project from water runoff issues.

LASER PROFILE PIPE INSPECTION

Dowdy uses the latest technology to save you time and money. Our CCTV laser pipe inspection tools help you diagnose the condition of your water piping system quickly, so you can plan accurately without surprises. If you need to know the exact dimensions of your pipes at various points, our state-of-the-art laser inspection can tell you.

If you need to locate and identify debris inside your pipes, damage to the pipes from internal or external sources, or any other aspect of their condition or construction, we can help. With our technology, all this is possible without the costly process of digging up the pipes.

How It Works

When you call Dowdy, we’ll send out a team to your site. We’ll place our Rausch rover with CCTV (Closed Circuit Television) camera into your pipes to capture high-resolution, color images of the pipe interior and send them to a computer screen above ground as they’re captured. The camera can be moved and zoomed in to give you a variety of angels and views of damage and points of interest.

We’ll compile these images into a full-color report and deliver that report to you as a physical copy and on a thumb drive so you can easily share it or send it to anyone who needs to see it. As utility experts, Dowdy can help you diagnose potential trouble and repair damage to your pipes to keep your projects running without stress.
