The Process

To streamline the construction process, Blackstone employs a fast-track method of project delivery.  The fast-track method integrates design and construction so that both progress as simultaneously as possible.  This reduces cost and avoids many of the pitfalls that can potentially delay project completion.

Fast-Track Method

Blackstone manages contracts differently.  We collaborate as a team in a phased contract basis so design, bids, and build all happen simultaneously.

  • Design-Bid-Build

    In the Design-Bid-Build process, the owner works and contracts directly with the designer, engineer, and contractor. The owner is responsible for the decision-making, design, purchasing and risk. This is a common way of establishing contract builds, however;

    • It is often costly in both resources and time.
    • The disconnect between the design of the project and the actual implementation means the process is less integrated and the risk of miscommunication increases.
    • Expectations and results are far removed from each other.

Fast-Track

In the Fast-Track process, the owner… is working with Blackstone as a fully integrated team. The contractor, Blackstone, takes on all the burden of risk in this Turnkey Construction technique.  

  • Reduces cost of both time and resources.
  • Maintains a consistent collaboration between design, contracting, and build.  
  • Phases expectations and results so that you can see each step in completion, making the project's long term expectations more active and thus, more realistic.
