Tutor Perini Corporation Case Study

Since 1894, Sylmar, CA-based Tutor Perini Corporation has provided construction services to public and private clients throughout the world. With over 11,000 employees and $5 billion in revenue, the company is a leading civil and building construction company offering general contracting and design-build services.

Tutor Perini acquired nine separate companies, each with its own ERP system. Due to the cost of maintaining all of their systems, they needed to consolidate to one scalable solution that would grow along with their business. And with their aggressive timeline, the company was skeptical that JD Edwards could fit their needs and budget.

The CSS Approach

CSS grouped the business units together based on their legacy solutions, then created a global design and rolled it out in multiple phases. Leveraging pre-configured templates accelerated solution delivery and implementing a Specialty Contractor Segment provided pay-when-paid functionality, allowing Tutor Perini to cost effectively deliver on lump sum jobs.

To jump start Tutor Perini’s go-live, they engaged Managed Services to assist with ongoing production support and help desk. Managed Services allowed the experienced project team members from both Tutor Perini and CSS to move on and focus on rolling out the next phase.


With a rapid JD Edwards deployment and complete back office conversion throughout their 19 business units, CSS transformed Tutor Perini’s business.
