Construction Services from Start to Finish

Construction Services from Start to Finish

Whether you call it design-build or EPC (engineer-procure-construct), Burns & McDonnell will manage your project from conceptual design through post-construction phases.

We are ranked by Engineering News-Record in the top 10 percent of the leading 500 U.S. design firms and the top third for the leading design-build/EPC firms overall.

Burns & McDonnell has a long history of successfully using the design-build/EPC delivery method for our clients in the power, process, aviation, infrastructure and commercial industries. Our selected design-build staff understands the duties and responsibilities required to successfully implement all engineering, procurement, construction, safety, quality, administration, technical inspections and management portions of the projects. Our construction professionals are experienced in multiple subcontracts, fast-track, complex design-build/EPC projects.

Having a fully integrated engineering and construction team working together under one roof is the best of both worlds.

It eliminates communication problems between designers and contractors. Integrated approaches allow for "best field practices" to be incorporated into the design, making the process more efficient over time.

Other benefits include single source responsibility, faster project completion, early known cost, open book team approach, enhanced quality and lower overall project cost.

The partnership created between project owners and our professionals establishes a foundation for the successful, quick, safe and efficient execution of projects. By carefully defining the end-product, needs and expectations early in the process, we set shared goals, forming a cohesive bond that is maintained throughout the project.

Let us make your next project successful.
