    CONTENT EXPIRES: December 31, 2023 Risk management and allocation are hot topics in design build. This session will focus on the topic as it relates to utilities, one of the top ranked risks to modern transportation infrastructure projects. Managing this risk successfully continues to be a challenge for both project owners and Design Build practitioners alike. Beginning to address this risk prior to award is an essential aspect of successful project delivery and this session will provide the tools and methods being used on projects that have successfully managed to reduce the risk posed by utility site conditions. Objectives: 1. We will analyze current issues with risk allocation practices that often lead to liquidated damages and other claims and the contracting practices that lead to them. 2. We will asses the effect that the pricing of utility risk has on the overall solicitation process and ultimately successful project deliveries. 3. Methods will be presented to ensure utility risk is being allocated to the party most appropriate to own and manage the risk. 4. Best practices for procurement and contracting strategies will be described to aid in reducing claims related to utility conditions.

    CONTENT EXPIRES: December 31, 2023 Discussion of the efforts of KS Engineers, P.C. (KSE) in providing Construction Quality Assurance (QA) and Construction Engineering and Inspection (CEI) services for the design-build Goethals Bridge Replacement Project for the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey (PANYNJ). The project replaced the original Goethals Bridge, which was built in the 1920s and spanned the Arthur Kill River on I-278 connecting Elizabeth, New Jersey and Staten Island, New York, with dual eastbound and westbound bridges. The original bridge was subsequently demolished. It is anticipated that the two new bridges will carry approximately 14 million vehicles annually. Objectives: 1. Understand the significance of a Quality Assurance Plan in complex projects. 2. Discuss the importance of collaboration in design-build projects. 3. Explain how the use of Standard Operating Procedures lead to project success. 4. Describe how the implementation of Controlled Inspection Checklists help to ensure accuracy with design and construction documentation.

    CONTENT EXPIRES: December 31, 2023 Transit Agencies are experiencing new challenges, such as a refocus on public safety, a shift in travel demand with work-from-home lifestyles and a growing need to provide reliable, dependable, and safe public transit to serve our communities. Often, flex bus, LRT and bus rapid transit services can operate within existing roadway right-of-way, interstate medians or express lanes and can easily connect suburbs and urban centers. These systems use electric-powered vehicles, rely on clean energy, reduce GHG emissions and provide sustainable transportation solutions. A panel of transit and transportation agency experts will discuss their plans for expanded electric bus rapid service, LRT or automated people mover transit and how design-build makes these projects more effective to implement. Objectives: 1. Understand why the future of transit is in jeopardy and identify how transit professionals can help reinvest in this essential service. 2. Explain what key decisions are factored into Owner project delivery decisions and how design-build has unique benefits. 3. Identify how design-build project delivery can help simplify and address FTA compliance challenges in transit projects. 4. Discuss key considerations for Transit Owners to effectively manage risk on design-build projects.

    CONTENT EXPIRES: December 31, 2023 2020 proved that the internet is critical to our work environments. As the Country rebounds from the impacts of COVID-19, our reliance on a connected environment is not likely to change. Since 2019 almost every state has enacted legislation to assist in expanding broadband service. Several DOT agencies have been charged with helping to a facilitate this expansion along public rights-of-way. Kentucky, Virginia, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Georgia, Arizona and the District of Columbia are examples where agencies are using alternative project delivery models to facilitate this expansion. This panel will discuss various models that work best, balance risk and why. Objectives: 1. Explain successful broadband implementation with a public agency focus. 2. Learn why using the standard DB or P3 models may actually increase risk to all parties. 3. Explain greatest risks and how to avoid excessive risk transfer in broadband projects. 4. Demonstrate ways to use P3 procurement to increase value from a Broadband procurement.

    CONTENT EXPIRES: December 31, 2023 The LIRR Expansion Project is focused on providing a third track to a 10-mile segment of the railroad. To ensure rapid delivery, MTA Construction and Development selected a DB delivery model. An Arup and Jacobs joint venture team is providing oversight of the DB. To aid the agency in establishing best practices, the PM team developed a range of customized digital tools and workflows designed to improve transparency, streamline information sharing, measure performance, and enhance coordination. Utilizing a variety of applications and technologies along with data pulled from numerous stakeholders, the tools track everything from technical compliance to construction activity. Objectives: 1. Determine best Project Information Management System to use in order to facilitate effective reporting. 2. Define effective KPIs to ensure productive communication of project information to stakeholders. 3. Define level of effort of reporting needed for scale of a project. 4. Demonstrate to project stakeholders the benefits of digital tools and reporting, and how they will provide transparency and enhance overall coordination.

    CONTENT EXPIRES: December 31, 2023 Design-build projects are procured and contracted with a certain level of geotechnical and subsurface condition uncertainty. This uncertainty is a function of subsurface data limitations and both owners and their industry partners agree that geotechnical risk is high on design-build projects. This panel of owners will look to discuss agency practices to mitigate geotechnical risk, approach to shared risk procurement models, implementation of geotechnical baseline reports and contract provisions regarding changed subsurface conditions. Objectives: 1. Recognize owner’s perspective regarding geotechnical risk within design-build projects. 2. Compare owner procurement strategy regarding geotechnical data (information data or geotechnical baseline reports). 3. Describe owner philosophy regarding shared risk and risk allocation within design-build projects. 4. Evaluate owner contract provisions regarding changed subsurface conditions after project award.
