Most owners, contractors, and designers have sufficient internal resources to handle “normal” construction projects. Where they sometimes struggle is in developing and executing projects that involve very large capital expenditures, unique technologies, complicated risk profiles, or alternative project delivery structures – such as design-build, EPC, public-private partnerships, and at-risk construction management. Owners find that they need assistance in creating appropriate procurement and contract documents, balancing risk, and then strategically managing contracting issues and disputes that arise during execution. Contractors and designers similarly find themselves looking for outside strategic help – whether it is to respond to an owner’s needs/demands, structure relationships with other project members, or avoid and manage claims and conflicts.

Capital Project Strategies is a consulting firm created by Mike Loulakis to provide strategic support and advice to owners, contractors, designers and others involved in the development of construction projects. Before starting Capital Project Strategies, Mr. Loulakis served as president and chairman of Wickwire Gavin, a national construction law firm headquartered in Tysons Corner, Virginia. During his 28-year career at Wickwire Gavin, Mr. Loulakis represented a diverse group of domestic and international construction industry clients on a wide range of public and private sector projects. He devoted the majority of his legal practice to serving as a special advisor to his clients on project delivery, risk assessment, procurement and contracting strategies, and creative dispute resolution. Combining his civil engineering educational background and a deep understanding of the construction industry, Mr. Loulakis gained a national reputation for his creative and pragmatic approach to problem-solving, and served as a “go-to” resource when clients faced complicated issues.

Mr. Loulakis founded Capital Project Strategies with the vision of providing practical, high level, “gray hair” advice to clients – augmenting the client's internal legal, procurement, and contract management resources on assignments where specialized help is needed. To accomplish this mission, Capital Project Strategies will have a limited number of clients, work on a limited number of projects and use personnel who are seasoned professionals, with demonstrated and broad industry expertise and experience. Unlike the business model of most large law, A/E and accounting firms, Capital Project Strategies is premised on having senior consultants work directly with a client to accomplish a given task cost-effectively and creatively. Clients not only benefit from the expertise and expediency that result from this specialized, "direct-to-the-client" approach, but also find that they enjoy the experience as well.
