Design Build Contracts: Getting it Right

Posted by Raymond Perr, PE

Nov 15, 2017 4:19:16 PM

In today’s global market place, the Coal industry must spend its capital and maintenance dollars effectively to remain competitive.

“Design Build Contracts” (DBC) consistently deliver projects that meet this goal.

Performance guarantees can be more effectively achieved, and many of the questions of responsibility that arise between the design, construction and commissioning phases of a project can be eliminated.

BUILDING NEW AGGREGATE FACILITIES

What is the most effective contracting strategy to procure the engineering, equipment, materials and construction to build a new aggregate plant and material handling equipment? 

  • Does it make sense to purchase the final engineering separately, or is buying it along with the construction the way to go? 
  • Should structural steel and major equipment components, like screens and crushers, be purchased directly by an owner or is it more effective for these items be included as part of general design build/turnkey contract?
