CONSTRUCTION PHASE Bob Smith, P.E. Region 1 Benjamin Acimovic, P.E., Region 1
Topics CM/GC Reporting Shared Risk Contingency Pool QA/QC CMOS – Change Orders Scheduling Disputes Resolution Similarity with Design-Bid-Build Value Engineering during Construction
CM/GC Reporting Nabil Haddad will notify all CM/GC project construction teams about what information is needed to be tracked and reported. DBE reports and FHWA labor compliance reports do not change. Finals are similar but innovation tracking is required. This based on the innovations included in the project plans and how the performed during construction (time and cost). Based on preconstruction tracking developed with contractor.
Shared Risk Contingency Pool F/A Item that acts as a project MCR line item. Use during construction is limited to paying for risk mitigation that could not be eliminated during preconstruction. Any remaining money in the pool after project acceptance is split between the general contractor and CDOT. Incentive is to not use this pool during construction. Project Engineer or Resident Engineer manage the shared risk contingency pool.
QA/QC on CM/GC Projects QA/QC on CM/GC construction is handled in the same way we handle QA/QC on design-bid-build projects. Construction Management, Testing and Inspection will be through CDOT or Consultant Project Engineer and staff.
CMOs – Change Orders Should be fewer change orders during construction on a CM/GC project due to risk register, shared risk pool, and early contractor involvement. Projects may still experience change of conditions, fluctuations in market conditions, and unforeseen circumstances. CMO process is the same as on design-bid-build projects.
Scheduling and Disputes Resolution Scheduling changes should be more efficient and easier to track because of the baseline schedules developed during preconstruction. Updated schedules are still required during construction phase. Critical Path Method (CPM) schedules are carried through from preconstruction. Disputes and Claims should be minimized with the CM/GC delivery but is handled with the same Disputes and Claim Resolution specification as in all design-bid- build construction projects.
Design-Bid-Build and CM/GC Traffic Control and Safety MHTs Inspection with CDOT or Consultant Inspectors Documentation – Site Manager Pay Estimates – Site Manager EEO Requirements – Payrolls F/A items for incentives/disincentives, adjustments, etc. Davis-Bacon Wages, Federal Requirements, and OJT
CM/GC Projects Only Generally no work is added during construction. Contractor is on-board early on in the design and is familiar with project. Design-Consultant is still onboard to assist in any changes. Contractor is paid by unit prices and lump sums (new pay items). Mainly risk pools and management fee. Contractor gives CDOT a firm GMP and is at risk to meet or beat the GMP (Guaranteed Maximum Price) Understanding from both CDOT and Contractor on how their processes mesh and work so that in the field problem solving and decision making is quick, efficient, and mutual beneficial.
Value Engineering on CM/GC No Value Engineering Change Proposals are allowed on CM/GC Construction Projects. Value Engineer is a key element of the Preconstruction Phase and should be maximized at that time.
The Big Differences Contractor is qualified to do the project Early partnering for better relationship Early participation creates better plans and specifications.
