DESIGN–BUILD FUNDING OF THE LOS ANGELES COUNTY SANITATION DISTRICTS' CRYOGENIC OXYGEN GENERATION PLANT EXPANSION THROUGH THE STATE WATER RESOURCES CONTROL BOARD'S REVOLVING FUND LOAN PROGRAM
Abstract:The design-build method incorporates both the design and construction of a project under a single contract. Although it may be used in cases where a project must be finished quickly, the accelerated delivery of a project is not the only purpose of design-build.
Historically, design-build has been utilized in the private sector where negotiated, qualificationbased selection is often the norm. However, this approach is restricted by statute in the public sector and procedurally discouraged in certain corporate environments. Accordingly, designbuild procurement regulations have emerged as a means of achieving the benefits of design-build and ensuring the award of construction projects on a competitive basis. Unlike the federal government where most agencies allow utilization of design-build, only certain states and a few public agencies in the State of California (e.g. chartered cities, county water districts, utility districts, University of California system, school districts) permit the design-build approach.
