Guidebook for Airport Capital Project Delivery Systems

The objective of this project is to develop a guidebook that airport operators could use to evaluate various project delivery methods for a specific project that will allow the operator to determine the best delivery method for that project. Factors to be considered in the evaluation will be identified, however, each airport operator will have to decide the importance of the factor in the project that is subject of the evaluation. Project delivery systems discussed in the guidebook will include: design-bid-build; design-build; and construction management at-risk. Since the terminology used in discussing these project delivery systems often have different meanings to different people, the guidebook will contain definitions of terms as they are used. The guidebook is intended for use by all operators of publicly owned airports.
