Apr 19, 2016 8:00am ‐ Apr 19, 2016 9:15am


Credits: None available.

Standard: $35.00

Description

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.
