Abstract

For organizations such as departments of transportation, other public agencies, and private companies, adopting a new approach to procure services for delivery of construction projects requires significant organizational changes; modifications to both their work processes and existing organizational structures may be needed. Building on findings from a study of public owner organizations that have implemented the design-build method for delivering highway projects, the have developed a conceptual framework for helping owner organizations implement a change in their project delivery strategy. They further refined this framework by comparatively studying four transportation projects in the United States. In addition, many experts in the implementation of the design-build method for transportation projects participated in a Delphi study to validate the developed framework. In this article, the authors present findings from these studies, including application to the construction industry and to other industries.
