Drawing insight from their work together on the Lewiston-Auburn (Maine) Joint Drinking Water Facility project, members of the project team will share how they used progressive design-build to create a flexible and responsive project. In addition to discussing the experiences and lessons learned from this project, the team will share best practices for making future projects truly flexible and responsive and thus able to capture added-value opportunities that arise.
How progressive DB provides the flexibility to accelerate schedule and meet requirements, allowing for greater responsiveness to funding opportunities.
How progressive DB provides the flexibility to assemble the right team of owner staff, design-builder personnel and local subcontractors, allowing for greater responsiveness to opportunities to reduce cost, build political capital and enhance efficiency.
How progressive DB provides the flexibility to successfully implement new technologies, allowing for greater responsiveness to innovative approaches, techniques and tools.
The key principles of flexible and responsive projects: the team shares the core ideas that helped them work together, adapt on the fly, and make this project a huge success, and provides guidelines that any project team can adopt for a similar purpose.
