  • Abstract:
    The USDOT and Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) recommend the smart use of innovative project delivery systems, such as design-build, to improve efficiency and effectiveness of developing transportation projects. Although design-build provides state DOTs with accelerated delivery and innovations in design and construction, there is still a need to accelerate delivery of design-build projects and achieve higher level of efficiency. To fully utilize the entire potential benefits of the design-build project delivery system, state DOTs are required to overcome significant challenges in various critical areas of the project development process including project delivery system selection, procurement, environmental analysis and permitting, right-of-way (ROW) acquisition, utilities coordination and relocation, alternative technical concepts (ATCs), and design oversight, design acceptance, and quality management. The overall objective of this research project is to develop a guidebook for the Georgia DOT (GDOT) to identify major challenges in the critical areas of the project development process, determine opportunities to overcome these challenges, and describe potential best practices to enhance the efficiency of project development process for highway design-build projects. The findings of design-build review and scanning process, and the results of interviewing design-build programs in 7 state DOTs helped the research team identify various issues related to efficient delivery of design-build projects in the seven critical areas. The primary findings of this study are categorized under these critical areas. Each area begins with clear description of the new dynamics of design-build and follows with critical challenges and issues to enhance the efficiency of delivery processes. These challenges relate to a variety of legal and statutory barriers or issues that can delay the project delivery schedule, increase the project delivery cost, and hinder flexibility of the designbuild team to implement innovative design and construction solutions. Furthermore, the analysis for each area presents efficiency enhancement opportunities as a set of propositions that recommend appropriate strategies for implementation. Examples of actual design-build projects are provided along with references from project RFQs/RFPs, design-build guides and manuals, and professional and academic literature for further clarification of challenges that can happen during development of design-build projects and strategies to overcome the challenges.
