AN INITIAL EVALUATION OF DESIGN-BUILD HIGHWAY PROJECTS PERFORMED BY THE INDIANA DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION

Design-Build has been an effective contracting method in the private and public arenas. State departments of transportation (DOTs) have used this contracting method on various projects for a variety of reasons. The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) has used this contract delivery method on a few projects with mixed responses from those involved in the process. INDOT therefore felt that an evaluation of the Design-Build program was appropriate to determine its future use in Indiana. This report gives an historical perspective of Design-Build and how the program has been received and perceived by INDOT; describes the project's survey and the data collected from the designer and contractor perspectives; relates the experiences of other DOTs with Design-Build; provides a somewhat limited comparison with the Design-Bid-Build approach; and makes recommendations for INDOT's future Design-Build practices.
