These prerequisites impose on our civil engineering fraternity to ingrain the aspects of sustainability, economy, durability performance , fast track construction through technology and aesthetics. In the earlier days, the designer and the contractor were combined in one entity and the majority of the contracts used to be 'design and build' contracts where the contractor's design used to be approved directly by the authority.
In between till the recent past, item rate contracting system became popular where designs are prepared by the owner's consultant and if the design has to be changed during the course of the execution original designer is not available but the PMC Project Management Consultant working as an Engineer on behalf of the owner coordinates design changes.
In the traditional project, an owner selects an architect or engineer to design plans and specifications. The design professionals analyse the owner's needs and develop design concepts. They then prepare design development drawings, and then construction drawings. Once the design has been fully completed and the construction drawings finished and reviewed by the owner, the project is advertised for bids.
Contractors pick up the bid solicitation materials and review a full set of plans and specifications to prepare a bid proposal. If the contractor's price is acceptable, the owner will sign a contract with the contractor and construction can then begin. This is where an opportunity is there to increase the success of the project by the integration of design and construction throughout these stages of the project life cycle. Project Delivery is the process by which all of the procedures and components of designing and building a project are organized and put together in an agreement that results in a completed project.
The Owner's approach to organizing the project team that will manage the entire design and construction process. In addition to choosing a delivery system for a project, the owner must decide what type of contract to use. A contract is simply an agreement between two or more entities in which they agree to provide a specific task in exchange for something in return. The contract type basically is the format on how the owner pays for the services of the contractor.
Traditional contracting systemIn the 'traditional item rate contracting', the responsibility for the design exclusively lies with the client chosen consultants and the contractors are chosen by the tendering process.
The traditional approach distinctly imposes contractual and temporal segregation between the contractors who has the actual construction experience and the consultants who have designed the job Traditional contracting is also called design-bid-build procurement method. The process requires the longest overall project time to completion.
Lots of experience in this method by all parties. In the design-build contracting system, the client or the owner identifies the construction project and states the client's requirement referred to in the Notice Inviting Tenders as 'employer's requirements.
While preparing the "design brief" and 'employer's requirements', the client hires the services of professional advisers or consultants. The notice inviting tenders containing design brief and clients statements are issued to prospective contractors who in turn prepare, plan and price the design proposal which is known as "Contractor's Proposal".
The successful contractor prepares the detailed design, monitors and manages the execution till the completion. The professional advisers or the consultants assume the advisory role of evaluating contractors' proposal including detailed design thereby being responsible for ensuring that his client obtains value for the money, through performance, aesthetics and best constructability from selected design solution.
Design-build contracting maximizes the contractor's ability to use innovative designs, materials, scheduling, staging and construction techniques. Design-build also offers expertise of the contractor for the project.
Depending on how risk and responsibility is allocated, the use of design-build can also reduce negative public opinion and improve communications within the community where the project is located.
Many projects have unique technical challenges, time constraints, or space limitations. In design-build, the proposal evaluation criteria can be tailored to individual project needs so that these unique challenges can be met by highly qualified proposers. However, capabilities to internally manage and administer design-build projects may be limited because the design-build delivery method represents a fundamental shift in contracting philosophy which may be in conflict with longstanding policies, job descriptions, and procedures within the agency.
Design-build is not recommended for projects where risk cannot be equitably allocated or for projects where time is not of the essence. This has not only diluted most of the advantages of earlier Design-Build contract system but also has introduced new complexities in operation of contract.
In the new Design-Build model based on concessionaire agreement, the detailed brief of the employer requires to follow four laning manual a Special Publication by IRC, SP specification for design workmanship, materials and performance. However the SP: 84 was specially prepared for PPP project highways where the existing two lane highways were to be made four lanes which includes four laning of existing minor bridges and culverts.
This manual is meant for mainly project highways having some structures and bridges as a part of the highway where the quantum of highway works are much more than structures within the scope of the project. However, even for the major bridge projects exceeding the lengths of 3.
In the new model of contract agreement, the contractor prepares the design on the basis of employer's detailed brief and submits the same to proof checking agency approved by the employer who in turns approves the structural stability and safety as per the design specifications of the contract.
The safety aspects in terms of accidents to human and animals etc. The consultancy fees of proof checking consultant and safety consultant are borne by the EPC contractor. Once the designs and drawings are cleared by proof checking and safety consultant, the same are sent by Design director of the contractor to Authority's Engineer who is appointed by the Authority Employer for the final approval.
Even after three levels of approval, there are instances where again Authority once again reviews the designs. Invariably, there are instances where after the approval of designs and drawings by proof checking consultant, Authority's Engineer sends the design back for the revision for which proof checking consultant would not agree leading to enormous delay in the final approvals of designs and drawings.
Thus the above provisions of new EPC agreement based on concession agreement is diluting the functional ability to fulfill aims of constructability enumerated in the Table 1. Constructability, as a concept throughout the total construction or engineering process, has a number of functional aims and design and build contract system has the functional ability to fulfill some of them Table 1.
From the contractor's viewpoint, he has to have expertise in many trades. The contractor's organisation structure should imbibe the expertise in construction methods, plants and equipment, new technologies and design acumen. As has been emphasised earlier, the owner always expects his structure to be completed in time, at minimum cost, within the estimated price, to be of good quality, aesthetically pleasing and not to prove troublesome and expensive to maintain as such sustainable.
He always expects the best value for money. All his expectations could be fulfilled by good constructability which can be introduced at the design stage by the designer having good experience and knowledge of latest steel, concrete and construction technology, plant and machinery and ingenuity for application to speed up the construction with improvised quality standards.
Good constructability is expected to produce the structure with higher quality standards with lower costs. Conversely, poor buildability in the design accompanied by poor detailing and inefficient communication will culminate in cost and time overruns, proliferation of claims, etc. The more complex the structure is, the greater are the number of operations and specialist trade requirements. Poorer the constructability, the greater becomes the long-term maintenance and repair problem.
The demand for fast track nature of qualitative construction warrants high end material and construction process technologies. In these high end technologies the constructability aspects distinctly dictate the design of the permanent structure as many times, the construction stages govern the design. However, the author is aware that it is asking for too much to expect all the designers to be masters in all trades.
Nevertheless, a system is a must where the design solutions take into cognizance, the construction experience including plants and equipments knowledge, concrete technology, construction technology and methods, etc, in crux the entire gamut of construction aspects.
Otherwise, the design solutions are incomplete. Also in earlier days, the specialised activities like auto launching, erection and dismantling of cranes, cable ways, etc.
In the face of fast waning foremen trade, it has become imperative to differentiate the constructability stream of engineering from the main stream and strengthen the construction system management section to sustain, document for continuity and scientifically guide the site on specialised operations.
Thus there is an obvious inherent deficiency of engineering and contracting being done by different organisations. The traditional contracting system which does not encourage organisations having strong technical departments neither harness the skills of the contractor during the design, nor the speed and accuracy of automation to transfer information from designer to contractor, with the results many parts of the process are done by both the parties.
It also leads to an adversarial attitude between parties on either side of the "divide", which is counter productive. In the past, constructability has been rationalised as the design contribution to improving ease of construction. However, it is realised today that this is only one aspect of constructability and it encompasses total construction or engineering process. Constructability as a concept throughout the engineering process has many functional aims and design-build contracting system has the functional ability to fulfill the same.
Some of these functional aims are: a Simplified contractual arrangements. However, it is often manifested that the most of the award-winning structures and finest architectural and pioneered structures in the country are the results of Design-Build contracts, when there was no rigid separation between designers and contractors.
There are also instances of mediocre structures where design-build approach was adopted. It is also necessary to allow sustainability oriented specifications under special conditions of contract which could be the exceptions from routine guidelines from codes and standards. There also seems to be some sort of bias towards foreign consultants when traditional contracting is adopted as they are allowed in some instances to violate codes and standards to attain sleekness and slenderness in structures and introduction of untested technology in the country.
The evolution of sustainability aspects in Indian construction, complemented by pioneered technologies through constructability and also some recommendations that were accomplished by 'Design-Build' contractors is captured below by way of illustrations.
Sustainable construction practicesThe least consumption of energy during construction as well as the energy for the production of construction ingredients such as cement, steel and aggregates ecologically protects eco system, health and natural resources; on the other hand the erosion of the same accentuates poverty. The construction ingredients and construction itself, which consumes more energy in the process of its formation, are not only uneconomical but also unhealthy by way of waste production, pollution and undesirable emissions.
In a country like India where the construction sector provides the largest employment, generating highest growth rate of jobs, especially absorbing rural and unskilled workers, which supplements workers' income from farming including women workers, it is essential that ways and means are strategized to implement sustainable development and cost reduction which are mutually inclusive in construction sector.
Since , many developing countries embarked on extensive infrastructure developments on unprecedented scale. Invariably, the concrete is the prime building material and worldwide more than 10 billion tons of concrete is being produced annually. Concrete construction in India is more than years old. All ingredients of concrete such as cement, steel aggregates and water are from nonrenewable sources and substantial power is consumed in production of these ingredients, and lead to environmental issues like pollution, undesirable emissions, waste production, etc.
In addition to the above, the process of concrete production itself consumes energy as has been depicted in Fig 9. On the basis of the construction process itself as depicted in Fig 9, due to the stages of raw materials production and transportation, concrete production where plant transportation, concrete mixing and delivery is involved and further placement of concrete though booms, pumping etc.
Despite the current energy efficiency, production of OPC consumes the energy of 4. The least CO 2 emission to environment as well as least energy consumption by optimising the quantum of concrete, steel and construction process can be addressed by Design-Build procurement alone both during design and construction stage very effectively.
New technologies and MaterialsAs is obvious from the enumerations above, energy consumption as well as GHG emissions can be reduced drastically by reducing the quantity of cement in concrete production. The reduction in the use of Portland cement is achieved by partially replacing the same with other industrial by-products otherwise waste like fly ash; slag GGBFS and silica fume CSF.
The residual of coal combustion, which is a good cementation material, are produced in abundance in India Fig The use of condensed silica flume CSF which is a by-product of smelting to produce silicon and Ferro-silicon alloys has been indirectly encouraged to a large extent by Indian standards revision by virtue of enhancing the range of concrete grade up to 90 Mpa.
The use of high performance, high strength concrete improves the durability, doubling the service life, while reducing the quantities to almost half in special structures. There is resistance to the use of river shingle as coarse aggregates, from some quarters even now while the shingles and gravel are available in abundance in Indian rivers which can be used easily for construction.
The Design-Build Program is an innovative delivery method by Caltrans whereby a contract for both design and construction of a project is awarded to a single entity. You will find various documents developed by the Department to implement Design-Build on this webpage. These documents are subject to modification. Delivery dot. Statewide Campaigns Response.

The Design Build contract templates listed below must be used by the University when the University contracts with a single party that designs and builds the project. The following documents are approved by the Office of the President and Office of the General Counsel for use by the Facility. A facility may place its logo on the Cover page. Each template document starts with a cover sheet and set of instructions. These instructions are for the Facility only and should not be added to the Contract Documents when distributed to the Bidder, Contractor or Design-Builder. Any document identified as "not in contract" is for the use of the Facility and should not be released outside the University.
It is a method to deliver a project in which the design and construction services are contracted by a single entity known as the design—builder or design—build contractor. It can be subdivided into architect-led design—build ALDB , sometimes known as designer-led design—build and contractor-led design—build. In contrast to " design—bid—build " or "design—tender" , design—build relies on a single point of responsibility contract and is used to minimize risks for the project owner and to reduce the delivery schedule by overlapping the design phase and construction phase of a project. Design-build also has a single point responsibility. The design-build contractor is responsible for all work on the project, so the client can seek legal remedies for any fault from one party. The traditional approach for construction projects consists of the appointment of a designer on one side, and the appointment of a contractor on the other side.
Compared with the traditional Design-Bid-Build project delivery method, the D-B offers potential time and cost savings. The D-B projects combine the design and construction phases of a project into a single contract. This reduces costs without reducing quality, since construction can begin while the plans are still being developed. A D-B contract can be awarded as either "low-bid" or "best-value," which is an important advantage. While low-bid is used for most traditional contracts, best-value selection permits the consideration of additional factors, such as experience, qualifications, innovation, technical approach, quality control methods and project management. Often this can reduce costs as well as increase quality. Design build alternative delivery method.
Что это за имя такое - Капля Росы. Он в последний раз взглянул на Клушара. - Капля Росы. Вы уверены. Но Пьер Клушар провалился в глубокое забытье.
Ни в коем случае! - отрезал Стратмор. Хейл вскипел: - Послушайте меня, старина. Вы отпускаете меня и Сьюзан на вашем лифте, мы уезжаем, и через несколько часов я ее отпускаю. Стратмор понял, что ставки повышаются. Он впутал в это дело Сьюзан и должен ее вызволить. Голос его прозвучал, как всегда, твердо: - А как же мой план с Цифровой крепостью.
Все-таки он опоздал.
Ты представляешь, что произойдет, если выйдет из строя система охлаждения ТРАНСТЕКСТА. Бринкерхофф пожал плечами и подошел к окну. - Электроснабжение уже наверняка восстановили.
Но этот канадец не знал, что ему надо держаться изо всех сил, поэтому они и трех метров не проехали, как он грохнулся об асфальт, разбил себе голову и сломал запястье. - Что? - Сьюзан не верила своим ушам. - Офицер хотел доставить его в госпиталь, но канадец был вне себя от ярости, сказав, что скорее пойдет в Канаду пешком, чем еще раз сядет на мотоцикл.
Он обратил внимание, что сегодня взгляд ее карих глаз казался отсутствующим, но на щеках играл свежий румянец, а рыжеватые до плеч волосы были только что высушены. От нее исходил легкий аромат присыпки Джонсонс беби. Его взгляд скользнул по стройной фигурке, задержался на белой блузке с едва различимым под ней бюстгальтером, на юбке до колен цвета хаки и, наконец, на ее ногах… ногах Сьюзан Флетчер. Трудно поверить, что такие ножки носят 170 баллов IQ. Охранник покачал головой.
Отпусти. - Мне нужен ключ, - повторила Сьюзан. - У меня его .
