Career History

Dr. John B. Miller's thirty-five year career has focused upon the business and legal aspects of public and private architecture, engineering, and construction. Dr. Miller graduated from MIT in 1974 with a Bachelor's degree in Civil Engineering and a Master's degree in Soil Mechanics. After serving as Associate General Counsel and Patent Counsel to Orion Research Incorporated, a Cambridge MA high tech firm, for four years, Miller joined Gadsby & Hannah in 1981, where he built a national practice in construction law and government contracts. Seeking to broaden his perspective on the construction industry and on procurement strategy, Dr. Miller joined the Center for Construction Research and Education as a fellow in MIT's Civil Engineering Department in 1992. He received his PhD in Infrastructure Systems in 1995, and joined MIT's Construction Management Faculty. In 1998, Dr. Miller was awarded a four year NSF CAREERS grant to explore and develop a new area of engineering practice that would coherently apply a new array of project delivery methods to American infrastructure networks. The goal of this research was to attract new technology and more effectively deliver complex collections of infrastructure assets i.e., buildings, water, wastewater, and transportation. Dr. Miller's work at MIT focused upon the development of a unifying theory, with evidence, for practical new approaches to address long term infrastructure problems in the United States. His contributions to the ABA 2000 Model Procurement Code and the ABA 2002 Model Regulations provide a robust, new project delivery model for state, district, and local governments throughout the United States. Dr. Miller's textbooks and other writings bring a rational model for infrastructure delivery to government and industry. In 2002, Dr. Miller formed Barchan Associates, LLC to develop advanced web-based technology for characterizing and tracking complex networks of infrastructure assets. Barchan's web based applications for tracking and managing the condition and refurbishment of public infrastructure assets was sold in 2006 to others for further development. In 2005, Dr. Miller rejoined the practice of international construction law, first as a partner at Gadsby Hannah, LLP in Boston, and then, in August, 2006 as Of Counsel to Patton Boggs, LLP in Washington, DC, where his practice focused on the provision of very large infrastructure projects in Qatar, Abu Dhabi, the Middle East, and the Far East. Dr. Miller's practice at Patton Boggs, LLP focused on government procurement strategy; Public Private Partnerships; choice of project delivery method (design-build, design-build-operate, design-build-finance-operate); negotiation of project agreements; requests for proposals, bidding, contract performance, changes, terminations, and all aspects of dispute resolution, including the preparation, evaluation, negotiation, mediation, and resolution of claims.

In 2008, Dr. Miller founded the Barchan Foundation, Inc., a tax-exempt not for profit charity based in Massachusetts. The objectives of the Barchan Foundation are to provide a common understanding how public infrastructure projects are being delivered and financed across the world, and to promote "best practices" in transparency, competition, and fairness in procurement.

Dr. Miller has extensive experience consulting on procurement strategy, including assistance to the United Nations, the Inter-American Development Bank, the Federal Reserve System, and projects in the United States and abroad. John lives in Winchester with Dr. Joan W. Miller, where they raised their three children.  Joan is Chief of Ophthalmology at Mass. Eye and Ear Infirmary, Mass. General Hospital, and Chairman of Ophthalmology at Harvard Medical School. 

Dr. Miller has been active in numerous professional and industry organizations, including ARTBA, IBTTA, ABA, ASCE, DBIA, NSPE, MSPE, CMAA, CSI, ICMA, and AGC.
