How We Help Our Clients
At the outset of a project, BGD’s construction team works with clients with respect to determining the appropriate project delivery method, as well as with bidding and negotiating contracts. BGD’s Construction Practice Group also assists public clients with procuring services and supplies, as well as with securing financing and insurance.  As disputes arise on a project, the BGD team represents clients on claims for payment, delay claims, bid disputes and mechanic’s liens.
