Prior to dispatching our field crews, Prime's survey management develops a keen understanding of each client’s needs and expectations through site visits and insightful conversation. We draw from our past experience to develop a written detailed scope for the project before preparing budgets. This ensures that each client’s needs are clearly defined and reduces the likelihood of costly overruns or omissions caused by lack of communication.
