As more projects move from traditional Design-Bid-Build to ADS, we see that no single solution is the right approach for every project. When ADS is the right choice, how do you clarify the roles, responsibilities, and influence of engineers when you’re no longer in a direct contractual relationship with project owners?

This 90-minute webinar will review the differences among several delivery systems alternatives, their potential positives and problems for engineers, and the telltale signs that your firm is entering into a specific problem situation, including:

  • Unwillingness of the prime to enter into a pre-proposal agreement,
  • Providing marketing or proposal assignments without team discussion
  • Lumping engineers with “other subcontractors”
  • Prime’s lack of knowledge of the client or project needs
  • Exclusion from strategy sessions, especially those involving project cost reduction or performance enhancements/innovations
  • Draft contract language where designers are assuming unreasonable or uninsurable project/legal risk.

If your firm is considering ADS work, this is a must-attend presentation to help you understand the benefits, risks, and potential pitfalls early on, before your teaming relationship is threatened by unacceptable financial, liability, performance, or reputational risks.
