Through this FHWA-funded research project, data has been collected from more than 275 projects by various State Departments of Transportation (DOTs). This session will give a summary of empirical results relating to performance of the various delivery methods (DB, CM/GC, DBB) and will include interpretation of the results from a highway agency's perspective. The results will allow agencies to make empirically-based decisions about when to employ alternative delivery methods.

Learning Objectives:

  • A description of the application of alternative delivery methods in the highway design and construction sector.
  • An understanding of the relative performance of each project delivery method based on the more than 275 highway projects in the database.
  • Insights into how project characteristics and risk profiles impact the project delivery decision.
  • Empirical evidence to make better project delivery decisions on future projects.

DBIA's Best Practices in Design-Build are Effective in FDOT Projects

Apr 19, 2016 9:30am ‐ Apr 19, 2016 10:30am

Identification: T04

Credits: None available.

FDOT District Four has a diverse and robust design-build and P3 program. In the past two years, FDOT has let 63 design-build projects. The presentation will evaluate and illustrate how these signature design-build and P3 projects successfully applied practices similar to the DBIA Industry-Wide Best Practices and DBIA's Transportation Best Practices. FDOT will discuss how these procedures have added value and reduced project cost and how they can be implemented by other agencies.

Learning Objectives:

  • The presentation team will illustrate how a public agency plays an important part in the Transportation Design-Build and P3 project process and the method that they select to plan, procure and implement a project can have significant impact on its success.
  • How DBIA’s Universal Best Practices add value and can strongly influence the opportunities for project success.
  • The presentation team will provide specific examples and illustrate how FDOT’s experiences parallel DBIAs and how the agency‘s DB and P3 procurement process has evolved to incorporate many if not all of the Best Practices espoused by DBIA, including the DBIA Transportation Best Practices.
  • Learn how other organizations, with design-build or P3 programs can leverage these same approaches to the planning, procurement and implementation of their programs and experience incredible project results and value added tied to the Best Practices.

Small Design-Build Projects: Achieving Benefits Below $10 Million

Apr 19, 2016 9:30am ‐ Apr 19, 2016 10:30am

Identification: T05

Credits: None available.

Design-build often produces substantial benefits for projects larger than $100 million due to economies of scale, etc. That said, design-build can also be the best delivery method for much smaller projects. This presentation will outline the ways in which Minnesota has found that design-build provides benefits for projects as small as $1-2 million. It will also describe the ways in which small design-build contracts differ from large design-build contracts, including the occasional use of low-bid.

Learning Objectives:

  • The small projects types well-suited for Design-Build
  • Contract structures to use on small Design-Build projects
  • Lessons learned on small Design-Build projects in general
  • The situations for which low bid may be appropriate

Teamwork on Monroe Bypass: Tested, Tried, and True

Apr 19, 2016 9:30am ‐ Apr 19, 2016 10:30am

Identification: T06

Credits: None available.

Monroe Bypass is a 20-mile long toll road just outside Charlotte, N.C., that is currently under construction. Since opening the bids in 2010, the project has been delayed twice due to a lawsuit. These delays, totaling three years, as well as the size and complexity of the project resulted in numerous challenges. Our panel, consisting of the owner, contractor and designer will discuss how they worked together as a team to overcome these hurdles.

Learning Objectives:

  • All parties working together can reduce the amount of time required to obtain a permit, build trust with regulatory agencies, and ensure the highest standards of environmental compliance.
  • On projects with extensive right of way, it’s important to think of the acquisition process as being dynamic. It works best when all parties are flexible and willing to adapt to improve the process.
  • Utility conflicts with third parties are a risk to the project schedule. However, this risk can be mitigated by coordinating early, understanding the utility owners’ resources, being flexible, and providing both design and construction assistance with the relocations.
  • Design Build project delivery provides opportunity for Owner, Contractor, and Designer to collaborate and adapt to changes that occur during project execution.

Design-Build in Coal Country: Coal Synergy and VDOT's 460 Connector Phase II

Apr 19, 2016 10:45am ‐ Apr 19, 2016 11:45am

Identification: T08

Credits: None available.

The public and private sector looked to "coal synergies" in the U.S. Route 460 Connector Phase II Project to address complicated real property and mining-related risks and drive down its price, bringing to life part of President Johnson's aspirations to increase interstate commerce in Appalachia. This presentation will introduce coal synergy and recount how this relatively small but mighty project in Southwest Virginia is a great case study in complex design-build delivery.

Learning Objectives:

  • What is coal synergy, and are there other industries that the design-build strategy can partner to deliver complicated projects?
  • How to think about real property issues when the subsurface also matters.
  • What are some strategies to share peculiar risks?
  • How to translate from transportation-speak into other industries’ language.

This presentation focuses on design-build delivery with an integrated team of stakeholders on a smaller transportation project ($75 million) for the I-25 Paseo Del Norte Interchange in Albuquerque, N.M. The success of this project is directly related to design-build delivery as the only means of keeping within the project guaranteed maximum price (GMP) requirement of the RFP, while accomplishing the functional goals of the primary traffic movements through the interchange.

Learning Objectives:

  • The success of this project is directly related to Design-Build delivery as the means of accomplishing the functional goals of the primary traffic movements through the interchange while meeting the guaranteed maximum price (GMP) and Best Value schedule commitment.
  • The RFP GMP and Best Value schedule commitment were met with the implementation of Alternative Technical Concepts (ATC’s) during pursuit and design optimization post award.
  • The RFP GMP and Best Value schedule commitment were met with the application of geotechnical enhancements as adopted in the Design-Build Geotechnical Planning Report.
  • The RFP GMP and Best Value schedule commitment were met by engagement and commitment across all parties through Design-Build Management.
