Buildings & Facilities

Ascendant manages secure U.S. Government construction and facility management programs in the United States and overseas, to include program evaluation/analysis, contract and client management, scheduling, estimating, design and subcontractor coordination, quality and safety management, and risk management.


We achieve client objectives in schedule, quality, and cost with well-planned and efficiently managed design, construction, commissioning, and facility operations. Ascendant goes beyond industry standard management practices and expectations; our team continuously strives to maximize facility asset value by evaluating each program or project from a lifecycle perspective, developing actionable recommendations, and implementing them to optimize client-specific construction and sustainment phase processes.
