Formal Partnering Agreement Projects

What is Construction Partnering?

Construction partnering outlines mutually attainable goals, satisfies long term needs and assigns risk among all the parties involved.

In 1993, The Associated General Contractors initiated the Marvin M. Black Excellence in Partnering Awards, named for AGC's 1991 President, Marvin M. Black, who vigorously advocated Partnering. The awards are now presented annually to the construction projects that epitomize the following principles of Partnering:

  • Teambuilding
  • Improved communications
  • Conflict resolution
  • Delivery of quality to the jobsite
  • Safety performance
  • Budget performance
  • Scheduling performance
  • Litigation avoidance
In 1993 and again in 2000, IHP was on the team of national general contractor Hensel Phelps when we won the AGC's "Marvin M. Black Partnering Awards" as follows:
  • 2000 Partnering Award-German Air Force, Phase II - Package A - Holloman AFB, NM
  • 1993 Partnering Award-F117A Maintenance Docks/Hangars, Holloman AFB, NM
IHP has participated in seven formal partnering projects to the complete satisfaction of all parties.
How does it work?
Partnering begins before construction starts as the first session is a workshop to set common goals, agree to standards, communications strategies, dispute resolution practices and problem-solving mechanisms. During the session, team members sign a partnering agreement or charter that reflects how they will work together. Throughout the life of the contract, there are partnering meetings at regular intervals to ensure that the agreement continues to guide behavior. Other forms of communication and forums for problem solving, designed at the initial session, are implemented throughout the contract.
