Our Process

GCC’s facilitated partnering processes involve developing vision and mission statements, defining critical success factors, identifying barriers and mitigation strategies, clarifying roles and responsibilities, understanding decision-making authorities, streamlining work processes and procedures, and overcoming team conflict.

Facilitated workshops to nurture the partnering dynamic as a culture within the execution team, including project delivery leadership, key agency stakeholders, end users, design, design-build, and construction professionals. Our partnering approach incorporates proven processes we have established successfully on over $13 billion of capital projects utilizing all delivery methods, including design-build and progressive design-build.

The design and construction industry has been the sole focus of our facilitators for the breadth of their professional careers. They have deep knowledge and technical understanding of the relationship complexities between the delivery agency, the A/E, and contractor teams.

The partnering process measures the interpersonal health of the organization and will enhance communication, trust, strategy, change evolution, and issue resolution — before disputes can arise.
