K. Cole Flickinger is the Vice President of BPGS’s Construction Services Division, which offers a full array of pre-construction, design-build, and construction management services. Mr. Flickinger has led projects for the Construction Services Division since its inception over a decade ago. He has worked to grow the company from a small start-up department to a corporate division that exceeds forty million dollars per year in gross volume.
Mr. Flickinger is heavily involved on the front end of each project. He works with his team and clients to provide preconstruction and estimating services, design strategy, and ultimately negotiate an open-book cost plus fee with GMP or lump sum contract agreement. He takes a detailed approach to fully understand the design, budget, and schedule requirements for each project. He then offers a customized strategy to meet the client’s expectations, and aligns the talents of the project team with the project’s goals.
Mr. Flickinger joined BPGS Construction as its first employee upon graduating from North Carolina State University with a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering. Mr. Flickinger passed the North Carolina Board of Examiners for Engineers & Surveyors Engineering Fundamentals Examination (“FE/EIT Exam”) and completed FMI’s Leadership Institute, a 36 hour leadership training retreat. He has also successfully completed OSHA’s 30-hour training course in Construction Safety and Health.
He currently serves as a member of the Boys and Girls Clubs of Delaware’s Wilmington Unit Board and also as Chairman of the Board’s Property Committee.
