Transportation Quality Documentation (ELVIS “Engineering & laboratory Vital Information System”)

Raba Kistner works with Departments of Transportation (DOTs) and other transportation authorities to develop innovative Quality Management Programs (QMPs) and Quality Assurance Plans (QAPs) for Design-Build and P3 projects. Our award-winning, web-based design and construction quality management tool, ELVIS (Engineering and Laboratory Vital Information System), is customized to meet the needs of each project, and allows team members to access, monitor and manage all project phases in a real-time, transparent manner.

As part of our infrastructure consulting services, Raba Kistner has written project-specific QMPs for transportation projects of all sizes, totaling over $12 billion in construction value. The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), the Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT), the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT), the North Texas Tollway Authority (NTTA), the Alamo Regional Mobility Authority (Alamo RMA), and the Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority (CTRMA) are among the clients we have served. Protecting owners’ interests, assuring compliance for developers, and enhancing developers’ processes efficiently and effectively are our top goals for all.
