The purpose of WVDOH use of “Innovative Project Delivery” or sometimes referred to as “Alternative Delivery” is to promote the use of innovative technologies and practices that increase the efficiency of construction, accelerate construction, improve the safety, improve the quality, reduce congestion from construction, and extend the service life of highways and bridges.
LISTED BELOW IS A LISTING OF INNOVATIVE PROJECT DELIVERY METHODS THAT MAY BE USED BY WVDOH IN ORDER TO EXPEDITE PROJECT DELIVERY. PLEASE CLICK ON THE METHOD FOR FURTHER DETAIL.
PUBLIC-PRIVATE PARTNERSHIP (P3): Structured in multiple forms, P3s involve partnerships between the public and private sectors to share the risks and rewards of designing, constructing, financing, operating, and/or maintaining publicly-owned assets in order for projects to be completed earlier, on budget, and at an enhanced value-for-money to the public owner.
DESIGN-BUILD (DB): A single entity to perform both design and construction (also called turnkey project).
INDEFINITE DELIVERY/INDEFINITE QUANTITY (ID/IQ): The contract is awarded for an undetermined quantity of work over a specified period of time for smaller and maintenance projects.
WARRANTY CONTRACTING: The contractor guarantees the quality of the project and responsibility for the replacement/repair of deficiencies for a specified duration after construction completion.
PERFORMANCE CONTRACTING: Based on performance-related specifications which specify key materials and construction quality characteristics that have been demonstrated to correlate with long-term performance of the finished work.
ALTERNATIVE TECHNICAL CONCEPTS (PRACTICAL DESIGN): A project development philosophy whereby projects are scoped to meet the purpose and need, avoiding the desire to arbitrarily bring the facility up to a maximum level for all design elements.
CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT/GENERAL CONTRACTOR (CMGC): The use of a construction manager to facilitate the design and construction of a project.
MULTI-PARAMETER CONTRACTING: Also called A+B+C approach. A represents cost, B represents time, and C could be quality, safety, or warranty.
LANE RENTAL: Contractor pays the cost of lane closure during the highway construction.
