Achieving Triple Bottom Line (TBL) Success using Progressive Design-Build Delivery

DCIM100MEDIADJI_0018.JPG

Triple Bottom Line (TBL) success involves a team commitment to balancing not only the economic (financial) components of a project, but also that of social responsibility and environmental stewardship. Projects that seek this achievement must focus equally on each of these goals. Using progressive design-build delivery, the Southwestern Parkway CSO Basin project in Louisville, KY, realized this success while supporting Louisville MSD’s mission to “provide exceptional wastewater, drainage, and flood protection services for our community.” This $78 million project included the design, construction, and commissioning of a large “capture and release” system that temporarily stores combined sewage during wet weather events. This temporary storage is facilitated by a 20-million-gallon concrete storage tank with associated wash-down systems, and a 30-mgd effluent pump station constructed below the Great Lawn of Shawnee Park which is part of Louisville’s Olmsted Park system. The project was led by Ulliman Schutte and their engineer of record, Burgess & Niple.

Generating Team Collaboration in Construction Management at-Risk

The single most important factor for ensuring the success of the collaboration process is the careful selection of the individuals involved. This is perhaps even more critical in construction management-at-risk project delivery than in other design-build delivery methods due to the nature of the contracting arrangements.

Guaranteed Maximum Price Determination on Progressive Design-Build Projects

“OK, so what’s this going to cost?” That’s the multi-million-dollar question we all want to know when starting out on any progressive design-build venture. It’s followed closely by “When will we know?” With the proper team in place, cost certainty can be achieved early in the progressive design-build process.

What Is Construction Management-At-Risk (CMAR)?

If you’re an owner looking to engage in a more collaborative delivery process (than that of design-bid-build), but not confident that your organization is prepared to pursue a design-build procurement process, then the delivery method identified as construction management at-risk (CMAR) could be the right fit for your project.
