Description

Join the Gulf Coast Chapter of the DBIA Florida Region and Skanska USA for a sneak peek at the progress at the St. Pete Pier. This is a great opportunity to see the Design-Build process in action. This gleaming new attraction on the city’s picturesque waterfront promises limitless fun for everyone, from first-time visitors to long-time residents. Its 26 beautiful acres seamlessly combine the peaceful blue waters of Tampa Bay with the vibrant greenery of downtown St. Petersburg’s parks, creating the ultimate place to stroll, bike, dine, drink, shop, swim, take in a concert and more.

After the tour, stop in at The Canopy (340 Beach Dr, St. Petersburg, FL 33701) and wait out the traffic with DBIA's local leadership. Feel free to join us for Happy Hour even if you can't make the tour.

The flexibility of design-build project delivery allows an Owner to choose among various approaches for procurement and contracting. In progressive design-build (PDB) the Owner “progresses” towards a design and contract price with the team, making it an increasingly popular delivery option. Using real-world case studies of exceptional outcomes, taught by some of the nation’s most experienced PDB Owners and practitioners, this course will help participants:

  • Gain insight into the flexibility of design-build project delivery and the trade-offs, key considerations and opportunities of the various procurement approaches.
  • Understand how Design-Build Done Right® best practices and principles apply to Progressive Design-Build (PDB).
  • Take a deep dive into PDB, including a close look at what it means, key characteristics and how to determine if PDB is right for a project.
  • Learn key elements of successful procurement, contracting and post-award execution for PDB.
A virtual attendance option is available for this course.
