The track themes for this year's conference are as follows:


Track 1 – Setting the Stage for Success

In these unprecedented times, ensuring that everyone involved in the project is on the same page is more important than ever. An all-hands-on-deck environment that fosters mutual understanding of key issues and challenges, and true teamwork/collaboration is critical to project and team success. This track will discuss important issues impacting projects nationwide from supply chain/material cost volatility, to technology, to demands for resiliency. A focus on the Owners role in embracing innovation, flexibility and trust permeates this track.

Track 2 – Progressive Design-Build in Action

Progressive Design-Build continues to grow in popularity as project teams are demonstrating ways this variation of design-build can optimize spending, drive schedule, and create more nimbleness and flexibility. This track focuses on five case studies, all including the Owner, as they discuss real-life outcomes and lessons learned on PDB projects.

Track 3 - Optimizing Outcomes with a Fixed Price

Owner preference or legislative restrictions may require that the Owner be provided with a firm-fixed price at time of contract award. This variation of design-build, when performed in accordance with best practices, continues to yield optimal outcomes. This track includes case studies that demonstrate how clearly defined expectations and collaborative processes drive success on Fixed Price Design-Build projects, including lessons from multiple design-build award-winners.

Track 4 – SOS: Design-Build to the Rescue

Design-build has long been the heart of rebuilding efforts in times of crisis from coast to coast. Whether it’s devastating hurricanes, fires, floods or other disasters, design-build has helped communities recover more quickly and cost-effectively by delivering efficient and innovative projects on-time and -budget. Critical water/wastewater infrastructure has also relied on design-build for mission-critical and projects. This track shows the power of design-build when time is of the essence, and when the risks and challenges are high.
