DELIVERY / CONTRACTING METHODS
Bowen works in a variety of delivery and contracting methods. Below are a few of the most common.
Bowen regularly performs Lump-Sum contract pricing to both Private and Municipal clients. Our focus on detailed estimating and pre-planning of projects benefits owners with clear communication and early identification / mitigation of challenges.
Almost 30% of Bowen’s work is Design-Build or EPC. Providing additional opportunities for cost and schedule savings, Bowen regularly partners with Design Engineers, Technologies in a variety of contracting arrangements to provide turnkey services to our clients.
PERFORMANCE CONTRACTING / GSC
Bowen works with Municipalities under state Guaranteed Savings Contract statutes that allow for Qualification-Based selection of contractors for Water and Wastewater projects. This allows for better collaboration and cost savings to cities as they address infrastructure needs.
FRONT END ENGINEERING AND DESIGN (FEED)
While Bowen does not complete detailed design, we will always maintain an engineering mindset. Our experience with estimating, conceptual design, constructibility is at the ready.
TIME AND MATERIALS
Bowen is ready to to provide outage, shutdown, and maintenance services for your team, and recognizes lump sum pricing and detailed designs may not always be possible.
TARGET PRICE ALLIANCE (SHARED RISK/SAVINGS)
This approach is often helpful when there is desire to lower project cost, or if there are unknowns within the design/construction. The contract is carried out as an open-book approach, and both the owner and Bowen are incentivized to find and share in savings.
