The Corps of Engineers established the "Project Partnering" process in 1988 as a major initiative to reduce construction claims and adversarial relationships on construction projects. Also seeking ways to improve the results of the construction process, others throughout the country began adopting this methodology for their projects. Enwright Associates, Inc. began using Project Partnering in 1991.

Much more than just a philosophy of doing business, Project Partnering builds trust and teamwork between the Owner, the Architect/Engineer, and Contractor(s). By aligning the goals of each of the participants, partnering clearly emphasizes the importance of success for all partners. Common goals, in turn, build commitment and motivation. Shared learning activities, such as the initial partnering workshop, focus on development of procedures for project communications, conflict resolution, and removal of barriers to success.
