Design-Build is a Project Delivery method designed to minimize project risks for the client and expedite the delivery schedule by overlapping the design, permitting, and construction phases of a project. Due to the numerous benefits, this method is gaining wide acceptance in the profession. WGI has embraced the design-build philosophy and, with an innovative approach to projects, has been very successful in teaming with contractors to win multiple awards in the transportation arena over the past several years. With WGI’s creativity and technical expertise, we are an asset to any team.
WGI’s innovations and design alternatives consistently enable build partners to exceed owner goals and earn incentives.
In sum, WGI’s design innovations have helped build partners earn $4M in incentives in the last four years. FDOT D2 needed to rapidly replace a culvert on Plantation Oaks Boulevard, under an emergency replacement design-build contract. WGI’s simple concept allowed the project to be completed ahead of schedule (in just 45 days from NTP), resulting in a $200K bonus for its build partner. The project also received an award of merit from DBIA Florida.
WGI’s design-build expertise also enabled a big incentive earnings by its design partner on I-75 Segment AB. Segment AB is the largest, most complex segment of the I-75 corridor and is 3.1 miles long. The project includes bridges, flyovers, ramps, and interchanges but, most importantly, it included express lanes that needed to be complete as soon as possible. The express lanes were open weeks in advance of the milestone deadline, so the build partner received $1.12M in incentives.
