Research for AASHTO Standing Committee on Highways. Task 407. Utility Coordination Efficiency, Safety, Cost, and Schedule Impacts using various Contracting Methods

This research aimed to compare and document reasonable expected outcomes in terms of efficiency, safety, cost, and schedule associated with utility coordination when using various contracting methods on public transportation projects. Design-build (DB), public private partnerships (P3), alternative technical concepts (ATCs), and construction manager/general contractor (CM/GC) were among the contracting methods considered. A summary of findings may be found in the final contractor's report, downloadable on the NCHRP project webpage. The report should be of immediate use to practitioners' responsible for utility coordination and the project development and delivery processes.
