ACCELERATED BRIDGE CONSTRUCTION (ABC): THE KEYS TO SUCCESS FROM AN OWNERS PERSPECTIVE Presented by James McMinimee, P.E., P.S.E. UDOT Chief Engineer, Director of Project Development
Learning Outcomes By the end of this Module, you will be able to: identify customer needs from a Utah perspective recall the benefits of using PBES recall the concept of user costs identify associated risks from Utahs perspective identify lessons learned
Utah Small State – 2.5 M people – $350 M Federal Program – DOT 1650 employees Big Transportation Program – 250+ projects – $2.0 B+ under construction
UDOTs Need for Speed Customer driven culture Implement new technologies: – Accelerated Bridge Construction – Accelerate Pavement Construction – Diverging Diamond Interchanges Increased partnerships Match Legislative tempo
Department Themes Accelerate Delivery Decrease and Minimize Detours or Delays Encourage Innovation that speeds project or provides value Get a Good Price Balance of good price vs. other themes
New Business Model Societal Costs Minimized Lowest Construction Cost Lowest Project Cost Public Praise Political Capital
What is PBES from a Utah perspective? Innovative methods to decrease bridge construction time Build elements offsite/outside traffic area Transport to site and install rapidly
UDOT has over 170 bridges total, completed or under construction that utilized ABC* Self Propelled Modular Transports: 6 Projects/19 Bridges Half Thickness Precast Deck Panels: 5 Projects/74 Bridges Full Depth Precast Deck Panels: 15 Projects/21 Bridges Precast Voided slabs: 1 Project/2 Bridges Approach Slab Panels: 10 Projects/15 Bridges Precast Sleeper Slabs10 Projects/15 Bridges Precast Abutments:3 Projects/5 Bridges Precast Bent Caps:2 Projects/2 Bridges Precast using Sliding:5 Project/10 Bridges Precast Box Culvert: 3 Projects/7 Bridges Heavy Lift Cranes: 3 Projects/4 Bridges UDOT ABC History
Innovative Technology First implementation costs more Potential for new methods to cost less Promise of time savings Positive cost-benefit ratios Promise of programmatic cost savings
Get Department Leadership Committed and Involved Provide Adequate Contractor discussion Obtain Funding for Demonstration Projects Plan a program of projects – not just 1 Use Innovative Contracting Scanning Tours Communicate with Industry, Utilities, Local Governments and Your Agency Lessons Learned and Best Practices- State perspective
Lessons Learned and Best Practices Engage the industry A
Culture or innovation You will know success when Regions and contractors are using and improving Innovation without central prompting ABC - SPMT, Precast, Improvements in Slide-in Projects.
Module Conclusion You should now be able to: identify customer needs from a Utah perspective recall the concept of user costs identify associated risks from Utahs perspective identify lessons learned and best practices
Polling Questions What are 3 best practices for implementing PBES
