Design-Build Project Delivery Risk versus Reward

Description:When the District of Sechelt decided to build a state-of-the-art wastewater treatment plant, it turned to the design-build method of project delivery – the rewards outweighed the risks. It delivered innovation and early confirmation of price. It helped secure provincial and federal funding. It provided risk transfer, value for money and saved time.This presentation will provide an overview of the most commonly used methods of design and construction delivery. It will explore what types of water and wastewater projects are best and least suited for design-build delivery. Drawing from MHPM's experience leading hundreds of municipal projects across Canada, including the new District of Sechelt WWTP, it will explore the risks and rewards to the owner using the design-build delivery model. Best practices will be shared on design-build risk management throughout the project life cycle: from funding application, project planning and procurement of a design-build team, through to construction, commissioning, and operations.
