Rapid Construction Delivery

The NFL Tailgate Party The National Football League called on Barton Malow to deliver a Super Bowl media lounge and 183,000 square foot temporary hospitality space in eight weeks. Fast, dependable service earned repeat work from the NFL.


The resources to complete projects quickly can help an owner earn revenue faster. For Marriott, renovating more than 1,300 rooms, we had six floors under construction at any one time; the schedule required completion of a floor every 12 calendar days. Every two days we turned another floor over, so the hotel could put the rooms back into use.

White-Glove Renovation Approach

At Valassis, one of the nation’s leading direct-mail marketers, it was critical to maintain ongoing operations while building a new data center. The construction process supported business continuity, with the client’s employees and operations protected from noise and dust.

Customer Collaboration Welcome!

Great customer service means sensitivity to client needs and priorities. A new bank branch for Fifth Third Bank was constructed with an adjoining wall to a china shop. A communication program kept neighbors informed about construction activities, to support their own business operations, which helped build relationships and enhance reputations.

Budget Management

Value is what you get for what you pay. It isn’t price. Our holistic project management approach helped General Motors open an executive center under budget. Cost-effective construction solutions deliver value.
