Blythe has been a consistent leader in Southeast’s growing number of Design-Build projects. As an experienced contractor with deep engineering roots in the Southeast, Blythe excels in taking the higher level of control and responsibility that the Design-Build model requires. By involving our engineers more deeply in the early stages of the design process, Blythe is better able to deliver quality solutions to complex issues that accompany all heavy construction projects. We use the increased creative control of the Design-Build model to engineer unique, one-of-a-kind projects that make our local communities and cities desirable—at greater cost efficiency to clients including the DOT, meaning greater tax payer value.
In the past several decades, Blythe has completed numerous successful Design-Build projects across the Carolinas—including the Winston-Salem Gateway Arch project, which was awarded the Carolina AGC Pinnacle Award, and the ACEC Engineering Excellence Award.
Blythe is also responsible for the I-485 Charlotte Outer Loop project, one of North Carolina’s largest NCDOT Design-Build projects, which won the ACEC award in 2016. In 2015, Blythe was awarded a $187 million contract for the I-85 Cabarrus and Rowan County Expansion project, a Design-Build project scheduled for completion in 2020. In both cases, Blythe worked with local engineering contractors to develop cost-efficient and innovative plans for maximum value
Blythe Construction, Inc. has also earned an outstanding reputation for collaborative building through multiple Joint-Venture contracts. Our teams are currently involved in JV partnerships on two major Design-Build projects: the I-85 Widening project in Gaffney, SC, and the I-540 project in Raleigh, NC. Our ability to self-perform most aspects of heavy civil construction, and our reputation for industry excellence, make Blythe an ideal building partner for large-scale projects that are beyond the scope of most contractors.
