CM/GC (CMAR) Informs Future Adoption of Design-Build
Progressive Design-Build provides owners a single point of accountability for all aspects of their complex projects. Many owners elect to utilize CM/GC or Construction Management At-Risk (CMAR)as their first foray into collaborative project delivery since it allows them to select both the design professional and the contractor independently. After completing several large complex projects utilizing CMAR the City of St. Petersburg, FL has recognized that Progressive Design-Build better delivers on the promise of complete collaboration and trust.
This presentation will explore the lessons learned through delivering two large-scale, concurrent projects at the Southwest Water Reclamation Facility. We will review how progressive design-build would have better delivered this complex project while meeting the city’s budgetary and schedule requirements.
