The Gordian Group has been providing industry-leading construction procurement services to local government facility and infrastructure owners since our inception. We help governments by providing products and services to deliver efficient and effective construction procurement and information services for every conceivable facility from schools to roads, municipal buildings and water treatment facilities.
In 1982, Gordian’s Chairman and Founder Harry H. Mellon invented the family of contracting systems known as Job Order Contracting (JOC) while serving as Chief Engineer at the Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe in Mons, Belgium. Mr. Mellon realized that facility and infrastructure owners could greatly benefit from the time and cost saving advantages of this leading-edge construction procurement solution, and, in 1990, he started The Gordian Group to provide these products and services for that purpose. Today, Gordian implements and supports customized JOC programs for our clients across the U.S. and Canada, and has expanded our product and service offerings to provide innovative construction procurement solutions to facility and infrastructure owners.
The Gordian Group’s approach to construction procurement has proven to help our clients maximize efficiency, optimize cost savings and increase construction quality and contractual control.
