Partnering Summit 2014

On February 27,  2014, more than 300 contractors, City department leaders and construction industry executives joined Mayor Edwin M. Lee to officially kick off San Francisco’s partnering program. Partnering brings contractors and City departments together to foster better communication and build trust. Successful partnering delivers projects on time and on budget, with the highest quality, and increases job satisfaction and safety. With more than $25 billion of City projects coming up over the next 10 years, the goal is to work better together.
