Construction Administration

Whether you are looking for project management, assistance with continual improvements, or submittal reviews - reach out to see how Forty Nickel can add value to your project. Take the design from paper to practice.



Forty Nickel was founded by Nick Uphoff in 2021 with a mission to provide independent services for facility improvements. Through proper coordination and eliminating inefficiencies, your project will benefit. Whether it's new construction or a retrofit, I will work with you to find practical solutions that meet your needs. Execution of construction is the most important aspect of an engineered facility and must be carefully monitored.  Scopes of all sizes are welcomed including short-term services. 


Projects often become delayed or turbulent without clear and concise communication at take-off. Forty Nickel will work to simplify scope complexities in order to promote understanding of the design and owner requirements. By taking a collaborative approach with the contractor and owner teams, increased accountability and trust will be formed. The simple and cost effective solutions come first. Ideas from any team member will always be considered.
