Synthesis of Information Related to Highway Problems. Topic 42-01. Practices and Guidelines for the Incorporation and Use of Geotechnical Information in Design-Build Projects

The use of the Design-Build alternate delivery method by state agencies for transportation projects is increasing each year. There appears to be significant variability in the current practice regarding the level of geotechnical information provided with bid documents and required after award, the level of geotechnical-related performance testing during construction and the contract provisions related to geotechnical design and construction.
