Choosing the right delivery method for your project is an art and a science. It’s not just about the contract. It’s about the right talent, resources and processes — highly integrated and tailored for a project’s specific needs. At Tutor Perini, we’ll work with you to explore every option and select the delivery method that best positions your project for success.
The general contractor and the design team are individually accountable with this traditional method. Often based on low bid, this method can result in aggressive pricing, though the linear process might mean a longer timeline. With this approach, it’s essential to choose a builder that knows exactly what to do and how to do it. We’re builders — and have been for more than a century. We understand the intricacies of developing a complex, multi-phased project schedule. By pairing decades of experience with today’s best practices, we eliminate obstacles that hinder project success.
With this method, the construction manager (CM) is engaged very early on, working with the architects and engineers to develop the project parameters. The CM either works as an advisor (CM-Advisor) or commits to deliver the project within a set timeline and budget (CM-At Risk). Tutor Perini’s familiarity and expertise with every aspect of the construction process is a huge advantage with this method. From site selection to bid packages to phasing, we orchestrate all the elements that must successfully converge to deliver a quality project, on time and on schedule.
At Tutor Perini, client success is always our primary focus. The program management delivery method is an excellent example of this core value in action. With this approach, our people serve as an extension of the client’s team. The construction manager is contracted as an owner’s representative, charged with executing the project from a client’s perspective. We’re there from planning and design to construction and closeout, keeping your project on track and anticipating issues before they emerge as problems.
With design-build, one organization handles both design and construction under a single contract. Because of our broad service offerings, Tutor Perini is an ideal partner in this approach, offering speed and quality from a single point of responsibility. From federal work to large mixed-use projects, we’ve successfully executed more than $17 billion in design-build projects since 2000. On complex, fast-moving efforts (our specialty), a client benefits from consolidated control, accelerated schedules, early knowledge of total costs, a guaranteed budget and — ultimately — reduced risk.
Increasingly gaining traction among governmental clients, public-private partnership (PPP, 3P or P3) is used to finance, build and operate large capital construction projects. Focused on the principles of shared risk and guaranteed performance, this method often results in long-term partnerships between the private and public sectors. A construction management partner that understands the big picture — and how to manage risk — is a major asset. Because Tutor Perini’s expertise is complicated projects, we know how to capitalize on this approach to deliver high value for the investment.
