Design-Build

Infrastructure owners engaged in design-build projects demand the highest quality at the best value while allocating certain risks to a partner. Our qualified delivery teams use a sensible, schedule-based approach to ensure projects finish quickly, at least cost, and with reduced impact to communities. With a well-balanced portfolio and experience representing contractors and project owners, we understand how to blend contractor efficiencies with owner preferences.

Our Expertise

Shaping Infrastructure
With decades of experience and projects ranging from $10 million to $2.3 billion, Gannett Fleming has played significant roles and established long-term relationships on some of the largest projects of this type across the nation.

Fully Integrated Services
We strive not only to identify opportunities for efficiencies, but also to create them. Our design-build team is adept at all phases of delivery, from initial marketing and proposal development through project execution. We look for ways to design smarter, use resources properly, and integrate design and construction services seamlessly. Our ability to perform most services in-house yields greater project control, increased quality, reduced risk, and a more predictable schedule and budget.
