Fast-Track Construction


At Burman, the words partnership, quality and integrity best describe the manner in which we operate our business.

We wish to partner with owners, architects, engineers and other consultants in creating not only quality structures, but also quality relationships.

To meet this challenge, Burman delivers a broad and flexible range of construction services tailored to achieve an owners unique requirements.

Let us know what you have planned — large or small. We work hard to be an integral team player, dealing with owners and team members with integrity and giving your project the quality attention that it deserves.

Regardless of whether your task at hand is a simple, small renovation job or a major multi-million dollar construction project, we want to help.

The services we provide


Utilizing our own in-house expertise, we bring together our construction project team, the owner, architect, consultants and major subcontractors to discuss effective strategies for communication, site layout and conditions, value engineering, constructibility, cost/schedule studies, and procurement of long lead time items, as well as plans for safety, productivity, quality control and testing.

General Contracting

Burman offers 50+ years of experience in general contracting services throughout Southern New England, providing everything from traditional construction to more complex turnkey projects. We always work with new and existing clients from an honest, open and trusting relationship—which is the reason why we have such a high rate of repeat clients.
We work very closely with the owner and the design team to ensure that the project is constructed exactly the way it was intended. We also understand how important the budget is, and will help to value engineer your project to ensure that you stay within your intended budget. We believe that when providing general contracting services, it is better to work together as a team with open communication, so that every project is successful.

Construction Management

We commit to delivering project excellence within a Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP) with the Construction Manager at Risk (CMAR) delivery method. As a CMAR, Burman is brought into a project early in the design phase as an expert consultant to work side-by-side with the chosen architect to analyze and select materials, systems, and equipment based on cost, benefits, and availability. In balancing the schedule, costs, quality, and scope of the project, decisions can be made to modify the design concept instead of wasting time, effort, and money redesigning and/or modifying completed construction documents. With the CMAR delivery method, we serve as the general contractor following the design phase.

  • Project planning
  • Cost estimating
  • Construction scheduling
  • Contract administration
  • Financial tracking and reporting
  • Jobsite safety management and training
  • Quality assurance and quality control
  • Commissioning and turnover


On a Design/Build project we are a single source of accountability to the Owner for delivering a project from the design through completion of construction. In this process the Owner contracts with Burman to provide both design and construction services which provides a way for the contractor and designer to collaborate early in the project to construct a building that is efficient in terms of construction and end use. Design/Build projects with Burman have many advantages, from getting a project from design to construction more efficiently, to creating a team approach and maximizing coordination during design and construction.

  • Single Source of Responsibility
  • Increased Collaboration
  • Total Quality Management
  • Cost Savings
  • Time Savings

Self-Perform Work

We take pride in maintaining a highly skilled work force enabling us to complete many different phases of the work on our projects.  Doing so, enables us to offer substantial benefits to owners in that it allows us to quickly identify and resolve any issues and efficiently reduce subcontractor delays.  By self-performing this essential work, we are able to better control of the schedule, project cost and set the standard of quality craftsmanship for the entire construction project


  • Schedule Control
  • Enhanced Quality Control
  • Cost Savings
  • Better Communication & Control
  • Increased Safety


At Burman, we have embraced sustainable design and construction practices as a responsibility to the communities we serve and as part of our commitment to helping our clients achieve their business and financial goals. We take a consultative role in providing cost/benefit analysis of a building’s potential for sustainable performance and possess the knowledge and experience to manage the LEED accreditation process. With our own LEED APs on staff, Burman is committed to increasing systems and maintenance efficiencies and enhancing the quality of life of those within and around our sustainable structures.
