focus on making partnering work on their projects? Over the years evidence has grown on the benefits of Collaborative Partnering.

Others have achieved similar savings and some have achieved a significant amount more. Geoff Neumayr, Deputy Director of Design and Construction at San Francisco International Airport said that: “SFO is able to realize a significant reduced cost per square foot in the range of 20%-30% as compared to other aviation projects around the country.
