Alternative Delivery / Design-Build / PPP

When the traditional Design, Bid, Build (DBB) method is not appropriate or will not provide the flexibility or outcome you need, you may have to turn to alternate delivery methods.

These sometimes-unfamiliar delivery methods can present new challenges: delays due to incorrect negotiations, limited opportunities for review and inspection, and even less control. New approaches to project delivery require a break from the old way of thinking. You need speed, efficiency, and local knowledge. You need Kimley-Horn.

Delivering Methods of Success

Kimley-Horn specializes in a wide array of alternative project delivery methods, including Construction Manager/General Contractor (CM/GC), Job Order Contracting (JOC), low-bid, design-build, and Construction Manager at Risk (CMAR) for a variety of projects such as widening roadways, bridge replacements, interchanges, intelligent transportation systems, and multi-lane access controlled freeways. We understand the pros and cons associated with each method, and we can develop design documents and cost estimates that are specifically tailored to the delivery method at hand and provide support with our construction administration services.

Through our experience, we have learned and mastered the key elements that make alternative project delivery methods successful—it begins with clear vision and objectives, a complete understanding and buy-in by stakeholders, and the establishment of a true public-private partnership (PPP). We will work with you, your key stakeholders, and the contractor to establish the partnerships necessary to make your project one to be proud of.
