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.
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.
