On 270N project innovation to get industries best ideas in the areas of community outreach, work force diversity, DBE, and STEM. By including this as part of the scoring process it showed the public and industry how important these areas were. The selected best value team for the project will share some of their proposal commitments and how design-build was able to turn a potential controversial project into one the entire community is able to support and take ownership of throughout construction.
