Delivery Methods

From construction management in the 1970s to integrated project delivery today, Barton Malow has been developing and managing project delivery approaches that best suit our clients and the peer professionals with whom we work.

When choosing a project delivery method, it is important to consider the project’s scale, complexity, and schedule. Delivery classifications are flexible and Barton Malow specializes in accommodating variations based on special project needs.

At Barton Malow we think beyond the contract type when focusing on delivery. Our approach is to integrate people, systems and practices in a process that collaboratively harnesses the talents and insights of all participants to reduce waste and optimize efficiency through all phases of design, fabrication and construction.

This is especially evident in our design/build and integrated project delivery approaches. Through these approaches, Barton Malow focuses on a high degree of collaboration between the owner, architect, and construction manager; the use of Building Information Modeling (BIM) software; the use of a control budget rather than a guaranteed maximum price; early selection of key trade contractors to work in a design-assist role; and the use of fee arrangements which incentivize team members to achieve project goals.
