Delivery Methods

Marco can implement a variety of contract delivery methods. Whether you prefer traditional general contracting, construction management, or engineer-procure-construct, we will find the delivery method that works best for you.

Also known as Design-Bid-Build (DBB), this is the ‘traditional’ approach to contracting. The agency or owner contracts with separate entities for the design and construction of a project.

A fee-based service where Marco acts as the construction manager. Here Marco is responsible exclusively to the owner and acts in the owner's interests at every stage of the project. Our involvement begins in the pre-construction phase, and we frequently hold the contracts for the subcontractors.

One Contract, One Integrated Team. Marco is the single point of contact for the design and construction teams. This approach minimizes risks for the project owner and reduces the delivery schedule by allowing the design phase and the construction phase to overlap.

The government enters into a long-term contract with a group of companies that have formed a consortium specifically for a project. The consortium takes on the responsibility of not only designing or building a facility but also operating, financing, and sometimes even owning it for an extended period of time.
