The Process

With Blackstone Industrial you get a proven team who are engineers, constructors,integrators & plant operators. To streamline the construction process,Blackstone Industrial’s normal development & execution model employs a fast-track method of project delivery.  The fast-track method integrates development & design; as well as design & construction, so that all activities progress as close to simultaneously as is practical & prudent. This reduces project duration, cost and avoids many of the pitfalls that can delay project progress & completion.

Fast-Track Method

Blackstone manages contracts differently.  We collaborate closely with the Owner as a team in a phased manner. The result is that design / bid / build happens in rapid-fire succession with components / phases of each happening simultaneously.

Fast Track Timeline
  • Design-Bid-Build

    In the Design-Bid-Build process, typically, the owner works and contracts directly with the engineer,architect and contractor separately. The owner is responsible for the decision-making, design, purchasing and risk. This is a common project strategy,however;

    • It is often costly in both resources and time.
    • Disconnects between the design of the project and the actual implementation can develop because efforts are less integrated.
    • The risk of miscommunication increases.
    • Expectationsand results can be far removed from each other.


In our Fast-Track process, the owner works directly with Blackstone as a fully integrated member of the Project Team. Blackstone takes on all the burden of risk in this Turnkey Design-Build process; but the Owner is intimately involved.  

  • Thisreduces cost of both time and resources.
  • Maintains a consistent collaboration between the owner and the design-build team.    
  • Phases expectations and results so that you are intimately familiar with each step of your project’s progress towards completion.

Doing Business with Blackstone Industrial

The scope, schedule and associated costs of a project are critical.To you, the client, it represents the amount of money you are committing to spend; and the length of time it will take for returns to start coming in on your investment. To us both it’s detailed documentation of all that is involved in bringing your facility on-line; the amount of time we will have in which to deliver a functioning facility; and the guaranteed maximum price you will pay for us to deliver your project.

Blackstone Industrial employs a Project Development process which through preliminary engineering, pre-construction planning & cost estimating produces a comprehensive scope of work, an accurate budget and a realistic schedule.  Typically, this is an iterative process in which the Owner is appropriately involved.
