The first use of 'Partnering' for highway construction in Arizona will produce several hundred thousand dollars in savings and will complete an interchagne project on I-17 nine months ahead of schedule. Savings will come as a result of improved communications, cooperation, streamlined decision making and value engineering activities. Partnering is a voluntary relationship between an owner and a contractor. In this system, both parties work together toward the common goals of timely project completion, under budget, without injuries and without claims or litigation. Partnering includes a broadened concept of the already existing Cost Reduction Incentive process used by Arizona Department of Transportation. In this system, the contractor and ADOT work together jointly on innovative ideas that can result in significant savings to everyone involved.
