“The Buffalo construction market has been one of the hottest in the Northeast, fueled in part by some very large institutional projects ” Ciminelli says. “We are now seeing those projects entice private developers to move forward on their own work, hopefully keeping this boom going. With so much work running concurrently, it is also being made clear that projects which embrace alternative delivery models and foster collaboration between owner, designer and builder early on are having better outcomes than those using traditional procurement methods.”
