The UCI Design-build process is the product of 23 Years of continual development that encompasses 90 projects and $1.75 Billion of construction value. This presentation will demonstrate how UC Irvine has implemented a competitive design-build process that addresses the challenges of cost-to-compete and design excellence through a rigorous, equitable selection process. The UCI Program is strategically calibrated to emphasize design quality and optimize long-term value to the University.
