AWWA-20711 Design-Build for Water and Wastewater Projects water wastewater shorney darby


Complete guide to planning, procuring, and executing design-build projects for water and wastewater systems.

On its next capital construction project, would your water or wastewater utility like to achieve:

• Seven percent lower cost 
• Thirteen percent faster construction 
• Thirty-three percent faster overall schedule 
• Fifty percent less schedule growth? 

These are some of the attractive benefits many water and wastewater utilities enjoy through the use of design-build construction over traditional design-bid-build construction. Design-Build for Water and Wastewater Projects provides a basic template of how to plan, procure, and execute a design-build project. Written for water and wastewater utility management, engineers, planners, city officials, utility policymakers, regulators, and design-build contractors, the book covers all topics:
• History of design-build 
• Types of projects well suited for design-build 
• Steps to prepare for a design-build project 
• Procuring a design-builder 
• Executing design-build projects and performing acceptance tests 
• Bonding, insurance, and dispute resolution 
• Permitting and regulatory agency approvals
• State laws regarding design-build

Design–Build for Water and Wastewater Projects was developed in collaboration with the Water Design-Build Council.
