Includes CE evaluations
A public agency panel representing new and seasoned programs across the United States. Panelists will discuss their multi-year project pipelines and why they have chosen design-build for optimum value and innovation.

Successful design-build delivery on larger infrastructure improvement projects requires constant collaboration and communication between the owner and the oversight consultant and the design-build contractor and designer. The I-35E $100 M MNPASS Design-Build Project was completed with a total of 240 days of slightly reduced traffic flow on the interstate and very little impact to the local system. This project incorporated multipleMOT ATC's, a bridge slide and intense design and review schedule to meet schedule objectives.
CSX has used PDB to deliver upgrades to their Class-1 freight corridor. Following the successful use of P3, CSX elected to use PDB to deliver Phase-2 because of the very complex NEPA permitting process they were facing to reconstruct a 110-year-old freight tunnel through Washington, DC. This effort was combined with a second PDB program running in parallel to clear an additional 15 obstructions along their freight corridor in VA, WV, MD and DC.
Warranties provide an excellent tool to ensure design-build projects perform to the level expected of the parties. There are limitations and requirements associated with the permissible term and scope of a warranty and these need to be taken into consideration when preparing a warranty provision. Likewise, administration and commercial concerns play into how warranties are structured and ultimately implemented. This session will present matters for consideration when choosing and using warranties.
It is hard enough to design, permit and construct a cost effective, attractive high-level bridge over an environmentally sensitive waterway. It is nearly impossible to do so while a federal injunction is filed against the project, a separate NEPA challenge and then a federal environmental permit challenge. But the DB team on the VMB project performed the impossible, then using Best Practices by permit mandate completed the project within the 975 day mandated schedule.
As part of the Columbia I-70 Bridges D-B project, the Emery Sapp and Sons/Parsons team utilized accelerated bridge construction (ABC) at three (3) locations to effectively address the project risks of schedule and Maintenance of Traffic operations. The Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) utilizes the DBIA best practices of procurement allowing the Design Build team to exceed owner requirements and project goals through innovation. This presentation will highlight the procurement process and the ABC techniques.
Examine implementation of design-build delivery to date (based on a review of 12 DOTs with active design-build programs on behalf of WSDOT) and determine whether design-build delivery can be improved.
Part two will continue with a panel discussion. The panelists will answer questions and offer insight from the team's unique project perspective.Speaker(s):
As new technology continues to emerge, such as connected and automated vehicles, it will be vital to incorporate these into our transportation infrastructure projects. Learn how agencies are incorporating these technologies into their design-build and P3 projects, how design-build and P3 can best used and explore the future of the transportation industry.Speaker(s):
