The Dallas County Community College District (DCCCD), one of the largest community college districts in Texas, hired ATSER when they needed to replace their inefficient, paper‐based communication system. They needed a streamlined program that would support their growing industry-specific workload and would enable collaboration between team members. ATSER’s team and systems were able to meet these needs and goals while staying on time and budget.

The Houston Independent School District (HISD), the largest public school system in Texas and the seventh-largest in the United States, also needed to upgrade their software systems. They needed a network that would support their increased, industry-specific workload, and enable seamless collaboration between team members. ATSER’s web-based solution increased team collaboration, automated workflow systems, optimized system performance, and ensured more than 50 Independent School District facilities were completed on time and under budget.

Pasadena Independent School District

This bond program included new construction and renovations for thirteen schools. These schools included a new high school, a replacement high school, a replacement middle school, a new fifth-grade campus, classroom additions at two elementary schools, major renovations at two middle schools, and new athletic facilities at existing campuses. ATSER representatives provided construction materials, testing, and inspections for the thirteen schools included in the initiative, encompassing more than 400,000 square feet of construction for new educational facilities. ATSER also provided a full scope of services encompassing earthwork, foundations, batch plant and field inspection of concrete and asphaltic concrete, and reinforcing steel inspections and structural steel inspections. In also included welding and high-strength bolting inspections, ultrasonic inspections, and verification of fireproofing products and applications for compliance with project specifications and local and UBC requirements.

ATSER’s practices were demonstrated by the innovative and unique use of personal digital assistants and web page data access. Utilizing ATSER’s Assure-ITTM software program, representatives recorded test data and inspection observations on digital devices in the field. Draft reports were printed at that moment for use by the contractor and other relevant personnel in the field. The test reports were posted on the Internet so that anyone who had appropriate passwords could view them on our web site. This immediacy of information was crucial in eliminating possible loss of time normally caused by delays in verifying report data. ATSER’s project manager driven system provided a forum for rapid resolution of problems; as a result lag time was considerably reduced.

The Harris County Department of Education

When the Harris County Department of Education (HCDE) needed a better system for keeping track of their projects, ATSER implemented Construct-ITTM. This bundled software system is our web-based capital program management solution that has the capability to provide rigorous project tracking through the planning, design, construction, closeout, and maintenance phases. These capabilities allowed the HCDE to provide accurate, timely, and consistent project and contract status on demand.

Combined with ATSER’s Track- IT™ system, Construct-IT™ allowed HCDE to manage, track, and provide accessible documentation for their entire project portfolio. In addition, our consolidated project dashboard allowed them to manage their entire project portfolio from planning to design, and through construction and maintenance. The inclusion of our Track- IT™ functionality allowed the entire team to collaborate and stay informed on cost, schedule, quality, and administrative issues.
