Alternative Contracting Methods

CONSOR’s expertise includes the use of alternative contracting methods (ACMs), such as design-build and Construction Manager/General Contractor (CM/GC), to accelerate project delivery, encourage innovation, and minimize unforeseen delays and cost overruns. Other benefits of these delivery methods can include risk reduction, mitigation, and distribution; streamlined plans; early work packages; and flexibility in changing project scope. When used in conjunction with single contract “project bundling” (a current Federal Highway Administration Every Day Counts Innovation), ACMs can lead to streamlined design and construction, increased competition, reduced costs, faster delivery, and reductions in transportation project backlogs.
