Borton-Lawson has a proven track record of identifying more economical project design concepts. Our team works with contractors pre-bid and post-bid, even after the project is completed, to recognize cost effective solutions and deliver design modifications to the project owner for ultimate acceptance. Borton-Lawson has completed successful alternate design and value engineering projects in 9 of the 11 PennDOT districts, as well as with the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission.
Alternate design and value engineering projects can include:
Borton-Lawson has over 10 years of experience working exclusively with contractors on PennDOT & Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission design-build projects, with multiple members of our staff holding the Design-Build Institute of America, Design-Build Professional (DBIA) Certification.
The expertise and efficiency of our design-build staff provides:
Borton-Lawson has designed numerous temporary and permanent excavation support and protection systems for abutment and pier foundations, retaining wall foundations, and roadway embankments.

Sometimes a contractor’s vision on how to complete a project in the most cost and time effective manner is different than the designer’s intent. In this scenario, coordination with the appropriate agencies and permit modifications are typically required to realize the contractor’s vision. Borton-Lawson has been chosen by numerous contractors to complete these permit modifications on their behalf. We streamline the effort to ensure that all permit modifications are approved within the allotted timeframe to build the project.
Permit modifications can include:
Borton-Lawson has been the critical point of ensuring project delivery for various moving and rigging clients and contractors who have required load rating analyses of structures to ensure successful delivery of their freight. Without the load rating analysis provided by Borton-Lawson proving the adequacy of the structure designs, some delivery routes would have been significantly lengthened to avoid crossing any structures, resulting in increased cost to our clients, and some deliveries would not have been feasible; resulting in lost revenue for our clients.
The Borton-Lawson hauling permit and load analysis process ensures:
