Our clients benefit from the broad range of experience that OHLA USA has in carrying out design-build projects in which a single contract for both design and construction is executed by one company.

This alternative delivery method, which transfers the risk from the owner to the contractor, creates an environment of collaboration that results in streamlined coordination, transparent communication, and innovative construction approaches that promote cost control and schedule acceleration. Our experienced engineers and seasoned project team members form a partnering alliance with a top engineering firm. The combined synergies often result in time and cost savings, leading to a successful project outcome for all team members.

In 2021, OHLA USA’s subsidiary, Judlau Contracting, Inc., was the recipient of the Design-Build Institute of America’s National Award of Merit for its successful delivery of the RFK Bridge Ramp to the Northbound Harlem River Drive project.

Our wide breadth of experience, along with our value-added work approach and deep knowledge of local markets, enables us to bring bid-build contracts in on time and within budget.
We provide our clients with the highest level of budget control to deliver the project at an approved price. We work closely with our clients during the preconstruction and design phases adding value and insight by ensuring constructibility.
This enhanced delivery method is similar to design-build in which we hold the contract with the owner and subcontract with an engineering firm to design and construct an infrastructure project.
The construction industry is constantly evolving and trending towards new and more sophisticated delivery methods, especially for public procurements in which funding gaps have been rapidly increasing.
