Praful Kulkarni Presents on Progressive Design-Build at DBIA National

Our Praful Kulkarni will present, “Progressive Design-Build – Successes, Trials and Tribulations – An Owners Perspective,” at the 2020 Design Build Institute of America (DBIA) national conference on Wednesday, Oct. 28 at 2:30 ET.

The DBIA is the leading authority on Design-Build Done Right and their national conference unites architectural, engineering and construction professionals to share leading strategies and ideas for the future.

Praful will be joined by Geoffrey Neumayr, Chief Development Officer of San Francisco International Airport, and Eric Smith, Associate Vice Chancellor of Capital Projects for UC San Diego, for his presentation.

There is an official website for the conference with more information for those interested. The full abstract of Praful’s presentation is below:

Progressive Design-Build – Successes, Trials and Tribulations – An Owner’s Perspective
Design-Build delivery has been evolving. Many owners have moved from design-bid-build to design-build Best Value Selection (BVS) and are now moving to progressive design-build (PDB). Through this evolution, there can be knowledge gaps between the design-build BVS and PDB processes with a variety of successes, failures, and a significant learning curve.

This session gives unique insight from two highly distinguished public sector owners who candidly share their stories. At UCSD, the PDB process was initiated about three years ago. While at SFO, the PDB practice has been implemented for over ten years with many successful outcomes.
