Project Delivery Methods
General Contracting/CM at Risk
We serve as both a construction manager and general contractor, employing a large number of skilled craftsmen and trades. Collaboration is always important; we approach projects as a partner with the design team and owner.
Construction Management (Agency)
Using a partnering approach, JE Dunn helps public owners select experienced, qualified firms with proven performance records for the design and construction team. Working together at the project’s inception, the construction management team can quickly identify and resolve potential project challenges.
Utilizing design-build provides single-source responsibility and the potential for rapid completion. Integrated design, construction planning and an accelerated schedule are hallmarks of this approach. JE Dunn fosters open communication and teamwork that is a necessary condition for successful design-build.
We place emphasis on developing programmatic solutions that extend beyond a single project. Our staff of professionals can provide great efficiencies, construction and design fee savings, control of quality and scheduling, and fiduciary responsibilities for the owner.
Integrated Project Delivery
A highly collaborative approach, integrated project delivery (IPD) assembles a team at the very earliest stage of a project. Enhanced by technology, we are able to dramatically reduce risk and gain efficiencies for the owner.
Often referred to as design-bid-build, this method is a linear process where one task follows completion of another with no overlap. The design team is selected separately and reports directly to the owner. Plans and specifications are completed by the architect and then bids are issued. Contractors bid the project exactly as it is designed with the lowest responsive bidder awarded the work.
In our evolution to becoming a more efficient, innovative company, we’ve leveraged our talent and utilized emerging technologies to create value added services that foster collaboration and enable us to build better. We seek to bring unique, additional value to our clients through these services and programs, developed and used exclusively by JE Dunn.
