Our Approach

The Delphi Approach to Construction:


Building Responsibly™ isn’t just a tagline, it’s the way we do business every day. At Delphi, we take full responsibility for all aspects of the project and work hard to ensure that it is a success in every way.


Our people and our approach are both highly personal and client-focused. We take the time necessary to fully understand the unique goals of our client, put their interests first at all times and work hard to exceed their expectations.


Our approach to working with project stakeholders is collaborative, not adversarial. We see ourselves as partners working together with the Architect to deliver a final product that exceeds the expectations of our shared client. We strive to be the kind of construction partner that clients and architects love to have at the table beside them.


We are flexible in our contract structure but unwavering in our commitment to exceed your expectations. Whether your require a Stipulated Sum Contract structure or GMP/Cost Plus, Delphi continues to put your needs first from start to finish.


Stipulated Sum Versus GMP Cost Plus:

Whether it’s a traditional Stipulated Sum bid or a Guaranteed Maximum Price contract, at Delphi Construction, our approach to each project is based on the principle that we are always working in the best interests of our clients.

Beginning in the pre-construction phase, we dissect the entire project to identify your goals and objectives, and review the construction documents repeatedly during their development to ensure that your goals are met.  This process enables us to work side by side with the design team to avoid pitfalls in the design that may unnecessarily increase costs.

We also identify cost saving options, integrate sustainability and energy efficiency initiatives, flag schedule impact items, and positively affect the overall constructability of the project within your objectives.

Our approach is to manage the process continuously, keeping the entire project in focus at all times to ensure its final success.


“We find working with Delphi to be very positive on a number of levels. Their leadership is a pleasure to work with and their team is consistently professional.”
