Mike Loulakis advises public and private sector owners on their project delivery, procurement, and contracting strategies, particularly when their projects are delivered though design-build, EPC, and EPCm.  Mike’s public sector work concentrates on transportation (e.g., road, bridges, rail, and airport), water/wastewater, and tunneling projects.  His private sector work concentrates heavily on domestic and international power generation (e.g., coal-fired, gas-fired, biomass, and hydroelectric), petrochemical, and process projects.  He also has extensive experience in representing owners and contractors on public and private sector facilities (e.g., hospitals, industrial, commercial, and multifamily).  Mike’s services include: (a) providing strategic assistance on project delivery, contract packaging, and procurement approaches; (b) drafting and negotiating contracts; and (c) helping to resolve problems arising during project execution.  Mike frequently serves as a third party neutral (e.g., mediator, arbitrator, and DRB member) and an expert on matters involving design-build, EPC, and other alternative project delivery systems.  

Mike has a history of contributing to the advancement of the construction industry.  He has authored the monthly legal column in Civil Engineering magazine since 1982.  He is one of the industry’s most prolific writers and speakers on the subject of design-build and has been a lead or co-lead investigator on several national design-build research projects sponsored by the Transportation Research Board and the National Academy of Sciences.  An active member of the Design-Build Institute of America (DBIA) since its formation in 1993, Mike served on DBIA's Board of Directors and co-authored its standard form contracts and Design-Build Done Right: Best Design-Build Practices publication. 

Mike lectures at engineering schools around the country and is an Adjunct Professor in the Department of Civil, Environmental & Infrastructure Engineering at George Mason University.  Mike holds a civil engineering degree from Tufts University and a law degree from Boston University School of Law.  He has been ranked since 2004 in Chambers USA as one of the country’s best construction lawyers.  In recognition of his contributions to the construction industry, Mike was awarded DBIA’s 2013 Brunelleschi Lifetime Achievement Award, and inducted into both the American College of Construction Lawyers and National Academy of Construction.
