DEFINITION OF DESIGN BUILD:
Design Build, typically faster than the traditional design-bid-build process, combines the design and construction of a project into one contract. The designing firm and construction contractor become a team, working concurrently on the design and construction phases of a project, expediting delivery.
The time savings in design build projects is realized by eliminating the lead time necessary to contract a designer, and then accept bids from contractors to build the design. Projects move from design to construction much faster through the use of the single design build contract.
Additionally, because the designer and contractor work in tandem, the contractor's changes can be incorporated into the design phase, eliminating the need for costly and time consuming changes during construction. This benefit also allows the department to estimate project cost early in the project development process, allowing for more effective budget planning.
LEAST COST AND VALUE BASED DESIGN BUILD PROCESSES:
The Department uses two types of Design Build contracting; Low-Bid Design-Build and Value-Based Design-Build.
In Low-Bid Design-Build contracting, the Design Build contract is awarded to the lowest responsive and competent bidder.
In Value Based Design Build contracting, the Design Build contract is awarded to the bidder with the best value score. Best value scores are determined based on a combination of bid price and a technical qualifications assessment.
The Department is Piloting a Two-Step Low-Bid Design Build.
Through a submitted Statement of Qualifications (SOQ) in response to an ODOT issued Request for Qualifications (RFQ), Contractors will have the opportunity to team with Designers and demonstrate the Team’s overall abilities. ODOT will determine which DBTs are the most qualified to successfully execute the design and construction of the Project and which will be invited to submit a price proposal.
The currently planned pilots for the Two-Step Low-Bid DBs:
HAM-71-3.81 (MLK Interchange) - PID 77628.

FAI-22-23.89 (Underdeck Truss bridge Removal and Replacement)
This project is for the design and construction work required for the removal and replacement of the existing underdeck truss bridge with new bridge, with new piers, new abutments, and new foundations, including all necessary roadway, MOT, and all other necessary work. The structure is over an active railroad line and a warm water habitat stream located on US22 in Fairfield County, Ohio near Rushville.
ODOT will deliver this Design-Build project will use a Two-Step Low-Bid delivery; initially short listing based on qualifications and ultimately awarding on low bid. ATCs will not be used and payments for Preparation of a Responsive Preliminary Design Concept will not be paid. ODOT has release a Request for Qualifications and deadline for response is April 10, 2014.
The Request for Qualifications can be found at the following link (Project 143025): http://contracts.dot.state.oh.us/home.do
In response to ODOT's issuance of the Request for Qualifications, five Offerors have responded with Statement of Qualifications.
