MFS was responsible for handling all contract administration, cost management, risk and claims, and providing inspection and reports of work in progress.

MFS advised the County of Morris on a variety of issues related to the project’s completion, ensuring stakeholders were aware of the necessary procedures to closeout contracts, obtain permits, and occupy newly built spaces.
