Job Order Contracting

Helping building owners and contractors increase efficiency and expedite projects through the application of construction cost data

Job Order Contracting is a proven methodology for delivering renovation and remodel projects using a set of standard unit prices and a reiterative project development process. Research studies have shown that Job Order Contracting expedites project delivery by 3-9 months, increases quality, reduces project costs, and increases both owner and contractor satisfaction.
