Alternative Delivery Methods

We believe in collaborative relationships, strengthened through communication, trust and the understanding that our clients’ success is our success. We aim to streamline the building process through close collaboration amongst the project stakeholders – owner, architect and subcontractors. We have created our own internal best practices, but also employ industry best practices through design-build, integrated project delivery, and guaranteed maximum price.


Design-build is a method of project delivery in which one entity, the design-build team works under a single contract with the project owner to provide design and construction services. One entity. One contract. One unified flow of work from initial concept through completion.

Streamlining Project Delivery

Streamlining project delivery through a single contract between the owner and the design-build team transforms the relationship between designers and builders into an alliance, which fosters collaboration, teamwork and communication.

United from the Outset

United from the outset of every project, the design-build team readily works to successfully complete a project faster, and more cost-effectively.

Integrated Project Delivery

Integrated Project Delivery or IPD integrates multiple parties – including owner, architect, contractors, subcontractors and other key project participants – into a single agreement for the design, construction and commissioning of a project. In an IPD agreement, all parties are responsible for participation in furtherance of cost and performance goals that the parties jointly establish.

Established incentives

There are established incentives for collaboration including quick and effective resolution of problems and cost savings. This delivery method aligns the interests of all parties, generates high efficiency, value to the client and overall optimized project results.

Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP)

A guaranteed maximum price or a GMP contract is a cost-type contract where the contractor is compensated for actual costs plus a fixed fee, with a predetermined cap.

Limit the risk of exceeding budget

Cost overruns within the scope of the agreement are the responsibility of the contractor; limiting the risk to the owner of exceeding the project budget. Cost underruns are returned to the owner and/or shared with the contractor to incentivize cost savings efforts.
