￼Alternative Project Delivery Methods
As an innovative contractor, we have completed over $3.6 billion in alternative delivery projects. The uniqueness of these delivery methods have allowed us to meet the challenges of today’s evolving construction market by reducing costs, improving construction designs, and conserving valuable time.
The nature of transit project funding by local, state, and federal agencies is changing. These changes, along with other contributing economic factors, are making the traditional design, bid, build process for rail projects outdated.
We have responded by using alternative delivery methods: Construction Manager/General Contractor (CM/GC) Service, Design-Build, Guaranteed Maximum Price, and Best Value where the proposing contractors are “graded” on a stated set of metrics such as technical expertise, schedule, quality, and price, with the selection going to the team with the highest score.
￼CM/GC DELIVERY METHOD
The CM/GC delivery method allows us to partner with the owner and project designer to provide preconstruction and scheduling services, constructability reviews, value engineering, and budgeting. We then act as the general contractor during construction and provide overall management of the project. This delivery method accelerates the construction process and allows greater cost-benefit decisions, saving the owner valuable time and money while also guaranteeing a quality product. Our thorough understanding of this delivery method is demonstrated in the more than $2 billion worth of CM/GC projects we have constructed.
