WDBC Education Programs Answer Your Questions and Prepare You to Manage a Design-Build Project

What do you know about Progressive Design-Build Delivery for water infrastructure projects?

Research about industry’s education needs has revealed that managers have a high level of satisfaction with the training provided by WDBC. The reason? WDBC’s education and training about design-build delivery focuses on what water infrastructure industry members say they need to know about the differences in the various project delivery methods. These complimentary training sessions are structured to respond to the fundamental questions that arise when making a decision about whether to pursue design-build delivery, and the type of organizational structure an agency should have to manage a design-build project. The content of WDBC’s training programs is derived from the Municipal Water/Wastewater Design-build Handbook, with additional input from WDBC staff and members.

What makes WDBC's training programs unique? They are designed as an experiential learning process, meaning that participants use a case study or project similar to their own, and apply the knowledge and tools they have been provided. The result is a first-hand, practical, problem solving experience based on industry best practices

When the City of Longmont, Colorado renewed its wastewater treatment plant discharge permit, it was subject to new limits on ammonia discharge that required the construction of a variety of new treatment processes at its 10.7 mgd plant. Given the short timeframe for compliance, the City chose to employ a progressive design-build delivery approach and selected WDBC member Carollo Engineers to implement the project. To learn more, download the complete case study >>
