Virginia Tech's (VT) Creativity and Innovation District Living-Learning Community aligns facilities, resources, tools and technologies to create a holistic environment that encourages residents to collaborate in uncommon ways. To bring this ambitious vision to fruition, VT sought a delivery process that bridged disciplines to leverage both quality and innovation. This case study explores the risks and rewards of criteria-based Design-Build delivery, the process for maximizing the value of this delivery method, and strategies for realizing efficient outcomes. The team will provide strategies to help others achieve successful Design-Build delivery, including defining selection criteria that match project goals, creating an RFP that motivates qualified firms to participate, building a collaborative and integrated team structure for optimal results, engaging multiple stakeholders, and using Design-Build to deliver top-notch construction quality and value. Virginia Tech's CID Living-Learning Community is an excellent example of how criteria-based Design-Build delivery can successfully bring a complex and innovative project to life. The project's recognition as both "Project of the Year" and "Excellence in Architecture" by DBIA MidAtlantic is a testament to the effectiveness of this approach. The presenters hope to inspire more collaborative, integrated teams to push the boundaries of what's possible in the built environment.
