Progressive Design-Build Procurement GuideThrough a partnership with the Design-Build Institute of America (DBIA), the Water Design-Build Council is pleased to announce a new "Design-Build Done Right" webinar on Developing Procurement Documents for Progressive Design-Build Projects.

The webinar will be held on Tuesday, October 29 at 1:30 pm EST and the cost to attend is $50. Participants will qualify for 1.5 continuing education units (CEUs). 

What is progressive design-build (PDB)? How does it work – and what are the key considerations in a PDB procurement -- are just a few of the topics to be presented in this webinar.

Given the benefits and growing popularity of the progressive design-build (PDB) approach to effectively deliver water infrastructure projects, the Water Design-Build Council has produced a unique set of educational documents for municipalities entitled Procurement Guide for Progressive Design-Build Projects. This webinar presents to public officials, owners, decision makers and industry members, WDBC’s user-friendly Guide that defines the steps involved in the PDB procurement process. These materials, which can be adapted for municipal use, support and facilitate the process to effectively and efficiently identify and select qualified bidders for design-build water projects focusing on progressive delivery.

Webinar participants will learn:

  • The differences in a one and two step process
  • How to define what is required in the RFP and RFQ
  • When to use an RFP or RFQ
  • The essential contract components

The course will be led by WDBC Executive Director Peter Hughes and DBIA's Brian Bedell. Click here to register now.
