|CONTENT EXPIRES: December 31, 2022|
Rail transit has several unique challenges including close interaction with stakeholders, community impacts, integration of complex systems and extensive regulatory oversight. Design-build has been used for large rail transit projects for approximately 25 years. This presentation will provide an overview of the author's 20-year experience in the management of these projects. Trends, both positive and negative, are identified along with strategies to address those trends and lessons learned.
1) Identify some of the major trends in the management of design-build, mega-rail transit projects.
2) Describe practical, real world lessons learned on these projects.
