Several months ago, I charged a multi-stakeholder work group with evaluating the Design-Build contracting method. That work group's objectives were to provide me with a report that consisted of a review of the proposals of the previous WisDOT Design/Build study (completed in 2001), a study of recent and past examples of other states' experiences with implementing design-build, best practices and lessons learned, and input from all stakeholders. Our analyses, along with the successful completion of the 6th St. Bridge project, indicate that design-build can work in Wisconsin.
As we move forward fulfilling our role in sustaining and growing Wisconsin's economy, we recognize that we have great challenges. The design-build delivery method is an additional tool to help us deliver our complex improvement program. It enables the Department of Transportation to contract with a single entity for both design and construction services on an entire project. It provides opportunities for innovation, accelerated completion time and a higher level of cost-certainty. The attractiveness of design-build lies primarily in the potential for innovation in project staging and construction methods that stems from the design-builder collaboration.
