    CONTENT EXPIRES: December 31, 2024​​ Intentional risk management is critical on any project, but stakes were raised when the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) utilized design-build (DB) of the I-480 Valley View Bridge in Cleveland, Ohio. After over a decade of planning how to re-deck the 40-year-old, side-by-side I-480 bridge high above the Cuyahoga River Valley, ODOT concluded the best way to minimize impacts and associated costs to 180,000 daily vehicles using the bridge was to 'squeeze' a new 4,150'-long, 200'-high center bridge between the existing structures. Through a two-step, technically responsive procurement, the Walsh Construction Design-Build Team (DBT) was awarded the $227.8M, six year contract.This presentation will offer Owner and DBT perspectives on how risks were managed - both pre-tender and post-award. Owner topics will include how project planning ultimately arrived at DB delivery, and how pre-bid Proprietary Technical Information discussions with shortlisted DBTs ensured scope compliance and eliminated non responsive bids. DBT topics will balance innovative solutions with risk to save time/costs within a constrained footprint - notably use of gantry cranes on the existing structures to erect 203 structural steel pieces into place, as well as partnering with ODOT on a post-award test pile program during design that significantly reduced driven pile lengths.

    CONTENT EXPIRES: December 31, 2024​​ WMATA was faced with the challenge of how to replace a 100 year old bus maintenance division in a dense unban neighborhood in Washington. With close neighbors who had significant concerns about the facility remaining in their neighborhood and the additional challenge of the facility being listed on the National Register of Historic Properties WMATA knew this would not be an ordinary bus division modernization project. With these challenges in front of them WMATA understood extreme collaboration was going to be needed to assure a new bus division could be constructed to continue to serve some of their highest density routes in downtown DC and they elected to use Progressive Design Build for the first time after having used traditional DB for nearly two decades. This presentation will walk through the many complex challenges including responding to a WMATA board action to add full ZEB capabilities to the building after 75% design was complete, and solutions the team developed throughout the design development preconstruction phase, collaboration tools used to obtain jurisdictional approvals and the open book cost development process used to finalize the construction phase cost, schedule, risk allocation and award of the phase 2 firm fixed price.

    CONTENT EXPIRES: December 31, 2024​​ Establishing early process and procedures can help facilitate the success of the project moving forward. Many Owners are making the transition from a Design-Bid-Build methodology/ideology to a Design-Build project delivery, from a low-bid practice to an integrative, collaborative contracting methodology. This paper explores best practices for the 'Procurement Team' to implement as part of a successful project delivery. After a project delivery method is selected, now comes the challenging part – establishing the team to deliver the project. For agencies in the early stages of using DB, how to set up the team, roles and responsibilities, process and procedures of how the procurement phase will be implemented and managed is critical. Design-Build can present many challenges starting in procurement phase, developing the RFQ, RFP and implementation starting with how different department work together, how decisions are made, the roles and responsibilities of the ‘Procurement Team” . Much attention is paid to project delivery selection…but establishing the ‘team’ is just as important in a projects success.

    CONTENT EXPIRES: December 31, 2024 The I-270 North Design-Build Project is Missouri Department of Transportation’s (MODOT) largest project in the past decade. The project is reconstructing eight miles of Interstate 270 in St. Louis County. Within the project limits, soil contaminated with radioactive waste generated from the Manhattan Project presented a major environmental risk to the project scope and schedule. The I-270 North Design-Build Team partnered with US Army Corps of Engineers FUSRAP division (Formerly Utilized Sites Remedial Action Program), early in the development of the bridging documents to identify the soil contamination and establish parameters for construction activities within the contaminated areas. During procurement MoDOT developed a flexible RFP to allow proposing teams multiple pathways for its interactions with FUSRAP. Facilitated meetings between Design-Build Teams and FUSRAP built a partnering relationship between all entities, allowing teams to confidentially propose construction methods and schedules and ultimately reduce risk to the Design-Build Team’s project schedule and scope. The close collaboration between entities continues through construction and has resulted in thousands of cubic yards of contaminated soil being remediated, benefitting all partners and the community, without impacting the I-270 North Project schedule.

    Considering the complexities many DOTs face when reconstructing heavily urbanized corridors that may have delayed environmental clearance, ongoing right-of-way acquisitions, extensive utility relocations, and/or competing community preferences, the Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) selected the progressive design build (PDB) delivery method to complete its $527M US-89; Farmington to I-84 freeway conversion and widening project.This presentation will focus on the real-world application of PDB delivery, with a panel—consisting of the Owner, its program manager, and the contractor/designer—all discussing lessons learned (what can be done better) and best practices (what’s been working) to provide: ? Maximum project value that promotes timely Owner decision-making and early contractor/designer engagement when finalizing the project’s scope, driving innovation in response to community needs and geographical limitations, and expediting the construction schedule. ? A fair and reasonable price, while adhering to legislative requirements and a DOT’s goal for pricing transparency.? Tailored risk allocation and customized contract terms that mitigate third-party (utility and right-of-way) constraints, overcome budget shortfalls, and transfer risk responsibility to the team member best positioned to resolve the issue. ? Streamlined quality control and quality assurance efforts that reduce project cost, improve testing/inspection efficiency, and ensure quality work is constructed.
