Along with VDOT, Shirley has been at the forefront of Design-Build as an alternate method of project delivery for transportation infrastructure in Virginia. With the award of the Route 28 Corridor Improvements PPTA Project in 2002, Shirley began developing our capabilities to
provide a turn-key strategy that performs all project elements. Building on our construction expertise, Shirley has the in-house Teams that integrate each discipline into a comprehensive approach that includes design and engineering, permitting, right-of-way acquisition, utility relocations, and quality assurance and control. We encourage innovation and creativity, and constantly strive for ideas and solutions that minimize risk, reduce project cost, shorten the project schedule, and lighten the owner’s resource requirements, all with a partnering approach. In the 20-plus years since Shirley entered the design-build market, we have become one of the
most successful design-builders in Virginia, Maryland, and the Mid-Atlantic region having won over 50 design-build projects valued at more than $1.5 billion. Notable projects, both large and small, include:
