DeKalb County, Georgia, has been under a Federal Consent Decree (CD) since 2011 because of an under-performing sanitary sewer system. This presentation focuses on 39,000 linear feet of rehabilitation and capacity up-sizing projects implemented by the County as part of Design-Build Package 1 to reduce and eliminate sanitary sewer overflows in accordance with the CD schedule. Unique challenges and lessons learned associated with the design-build delivery approach will be presented.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Owner’s perspective on the importance of Design-Build education for all stakeholders prior to implementing a Design-Build solution.
  2. Attendees will see perspectives from the Design-Builder and Owner on ways to address different risks in an RFP/Design Criteria Package on a Fixed Price Design-Build Project.
  3. Owners and participants will learn about unique challenges associated with public outreach and coordination with multiple regulators and political jurisdictions while implementing a design-build approach for linear infrastructure projects.
  4. Engineer or Contractor-led Design-Build? – that is the Million Dollar question.
