C2C promotes trust and collaboration, which cultivates proactive solutions, project strategies, risk identification and mitigation, maximized project potential, client satisfaction and unique client value. Through C2C, teams expand the construction approach from a focus on “building” and “immediate cost” to value and client-desired results. $12.6B # Total Construction Value of Engineering News-Record’s Top 400 Contractors in the U.S. Since 1968
