Julian P. Barry GC will analyze your project for feasibility and constructability. We believe the earlier in the process we are involved the smoother the project will be. JPB assists in site evaluation and selection. Many owners select a site because the initial cost is less, only to find out later the construction cost is much greater due to lack of infrastructure, topographical or unforeseen issues. Our expertise in value engineering along with our experience in systems implementation adds value as well as cost savings to your project. JPB will work with your architects and engineers during the design process to insure the greatest efficiency is achieved and that budget integrity remains throughout the entire design process. The result is the highest quality project at the very best value.
Design Build Services
This delivery method is becoming more and more the preferred choice of owners because of the many advantages over conventional delivery. Design Build offers the client a single source of responsibility as the contractor is responsible for the outcome of the entire project. He coordinates the architect and consultants while maintaining responsibility for their results. This method of delivery also creates an atmosphere of team work for the project, so the potential for problems are resolved before they become stumbling blocks. Design Build can also be completed in a shorter total time frame. Unlike conventional methods, segments of the project such as site work are designed first so construction may begin. This is referred to as “Fast Tracking” a project.

Integrated Delivery Services
Julian P. Barry has used this method of project delivery for over 50 years. 98% of our projects are delivered with this method. JPB will go through an interview process demonstrating over six decades of experience, knowledge and track record, while presenting our Fee and General Conditions. We are selected shortly after the owner’s architect and consultants have begun the design process. We will work as a team member with the architect and consultants to make recommendations as to, cost-effective designs, materials, and addressing constructability issues. Pricing continues for the project at various design stages to insure the project will be within budget when the drawings are completed. JPB uses the open book approach to accounting and establishes a GMP (guaranteed maximum price) early in the design process. We share with the owner, all cost associated with the project to insure total transparency. Throughout the years, JPB has consistently given the client back considerable savings at the end of the project. This is accomplished through, knowledge of industry trends, value engineering techniques, competitive subcontractor bidding, and completing the project ahead of schedule. Julian P. Barry General Contractor feels this is the best method to build a high quality project that is efficient and cost effective.
