Group PMX partners, Michael Giaramita and Farid Cardozo provided Program Management Services to the University of Connecticut to oversee the remediation of all code discrepancies found in various dormitory and apartment buildings recently completed by design-build firms. Mr. Giaramita served as Executive in Charge with Mr. Cardozo as Principal in Charge of this multidiscipline team, which successfully remediated numerous code discrepancies in a three-month period.
Following this phase, the scope of the program was increased, as required by the “Governor’s Directive”, and included the development of a plan to inspect every building on campus, generate a comprehensive database of discrepancies, and create an action plan to address each discrepancy via resolution with the original designers and contractors or a third party, if necessary. Upon completion of each building, the team conducted a thorough inspection with the appropriate officials and documented the compliance.
As part of a concurrent engagement, Mr. Farid Cardozo developed a comprehensive new procedures manual for the Office of Engineering and Architectural Services.
