Owners are realizing alternative delivery makes their life easier.

Owners continue to look for ways to save time, control cost and reduce change orders and claims. The advancement of alternative delivery models incorporates valuable lessons learned as owners are no longer constrained by “business as usual” which is enabling legislation changes that allow for alternative delivery models. This video reviews the differences between alternative vs. traditional delivery, and discusses the drivers behind owners using alternative delivery, and what the marketplace conditions are for alternative delivery.
