For years, construction productivity has been on the decline, hindering progress and improvements. It's time to pick up the pace by adopting an integrated team approach to streamline processes and increase efficiencies. This issue looks at how to shake up tradition on the job site.

Delivering Smarter, Faster, More Predictable Projects

As a global community, our growing needs in infrastructure upgrades, the revitalization of the energy market from the abundance of unleashed oil and natural gas, and generally strong economies make now a great time to build.

A new district office building and maintenance facility — brought to life through integrated design-build project delivery — preserve the legacy of an energy company with a long history of serving its community.

Nailing Seamless Program Management

From renovating multiple terminals at a busy commercial airport to overhauling the water infrastructure of an urban city, program management is a proven stress-reliever, saving time and money while reducing risk.

Play It Safe On-Site

Determining and tackling safety challenges on-site requires the right people and the right plan.

Prefab Can Be Fab

For some commercial projects, a new option is gaining ground: prefabricated building solutions, where building elements are constructed in a controlled environment off-site, then assembled on-site.

Randy's Insight On-Site

As president of the Construction/Design-Build Group at Burns & McDonnell, Randy Griffin and his team are responsible for safe, efficient and cost-effective project delivery.
