For nearly four decades, we have provided general contracting and construction management services to private and public clients. We are no strangers to alternative delivery contracting methods and have delivered many successful projects using Progressive Design-Build, Design-Build, Construction Manager/General Contractor, Negotiated, and other alternatives. At J.W. Fowler we work with respect and value the knowledge brought to the project by each partner and individual. Everyone at J.W. Fowler has a project-first mentality that allows our team to efficiently and effectively partner with owners, designers, and other parties to ensure a successful project for everyone.
I worked closely with JW Fowler construction leads at Leach Garden’s Upper Garden Project. Due to the COVID pandemic, JW Fowler undertook tactics to allow them to work safely through the problems. Some subcontractors were forced to slow their work because of covid; Fowler did not. Faced with labor and material challenges because of the crisis, Fowler adapted quickly and made progress. The relationship with Leach Garden staff was anchored in candid, weekly, problem-solving meetings using project planning tools. Fowler’s team met the challenges this posed with a positive spirit. They always kept the larger goals in focus.
PAURSS Contract projects with James W. Fowler have resulted in fewer design flaws and fewer design modification change orders. It has also strengthened the rapport and team building between the Owner’s stakeholders and the Contractor.
JWF was a true partner for the City throughout the project with the shared goal of providing a successful and affordable project for the people of Baker City. I enjoyed the opportunity to work with JWF on the construction of the City's UV Treatment Facility, and would gladly recommend them for any future CM/GC project.
