Max Taylor

Max has over a decade of experience serving as construction counsel at Denver International Airport.  This experience has uniquely positioned him to understand how government owners think about construction projects.  Government projects often include competing interest such as DBE, Workforce, and other political initiatives.  Max is experienced negotiating and drafting large and small construction contracts that ensure successful project completion and compliance with all government programs.   At Denver International Airport, Max was included as a member of the project management teams.  He spent numerous hours working side by side with the construction teams helping to navigate the day to day legal and political concerns that arise on large government construction projects.  As a result of this work, Max brings to BBG a deep understanding of the Owner approach to project delivery.  From procurement to project completion, Max can provide guidance on all aspects of construction projects.
