Geotechnical Baseline Reports for Construction
Our Price: $39.99
Geotechnical Baseline Reports for Construction
This resource examines the role of the geotechnical baseline report (GBR) as a means of allocating and managing risks associated with subsurface construction. The document discusses the rationale for the use of GBRs as a risk-management tool, the organization and content of a GBR, and the importance and benefit of ensuring compatibility between the GBR and other contract documents. This publication explains the application of GBRs to other types of subsurface projects, the application of GBRs in design/build project delivery, and recommendations based on industry-wide lessons learned. The document also addresses owners' perspectives and the importance of having experienced individuals involved during GBR preparation and review.

Our Price: $63.99
Project Administration for Design-Build Contracts: A Primer for Owners, Engineers, and Contractors
Explains the basics of administering a design-build project after the contract has been awarded. This book begins with an introduction to design-build project administration and goes on to cover topics such as scheduling, design administration, and design quality management. The authors examine construction topics including quality management, change orders, progress payments, and close-out. This practical guide provides case studies, often drawn from the authors' own experiences.

This book is a resource for owners, engineers, construction contractors, and architects who find themselves in need of guidance in administering a design-build project. It will assist those professionals who actually do the designing, the building, and the contract administration. It organizes the options so that the advantages and disadvantages are highlighted, providing the user the necessary information to make sound business decisions.

Preparing for Design-Build Projects: A Primer for Owners, Engineers, and Contractors ASCE Douglas Granberg James Koch Keith Molenaar
For nearly two decades, design-build (DB) contracting has become increasingly the method of choice in public and private construction projects. Many designers and builders are now drawn to design-build projects and must alter their business practices to accommodate the changed relationships within DB contracts.

Preparing for Design-Build Projects: A Primer for Owners, Engineers, and Contractors is a professional reference that covers the basics of developing a design-build project. The authors focus on learning modules that break down the decision-making process and reassemble it as a straightforward method for DB projects from the owner's standpoint. This book acts as a timely guide on developing DB requests for qualification and requests for proposals. It also assists the reader in interpreting these documents in order to prepare a responsive DB proposal or to evaluate a series of proposals and make a source selection decision.
