There are seemingly-endless ways to deliver capital projects. Methods have evolved from the Master Builder approach in the ancient world to the highly-fractured options that have dominated construction projects over the past decades. The trend of integrating design and construction is now well established in the design-build process and we are now seeing the further integration of financing and operation in the form of public-private partnerships.

Seminar Description

Capital projects involve the design and construction of such facilities as buildings, bridges, factories, and infrastructure. Owners of capital facilities not only want better, faster, and cheaper, they want predictability of final cost and schedule. Both private and public owners have become so frustrated with the industry's inability to deliver a defined scope at the predicted time and cost, they are trying new methods of capital project delivery.

Topics presented will include:

Traditional Project Delivery Options:

  • Design-Bid-Build
  • Partnering
  • Construction Management – Fee or At-risk
  • Design-Build

Collaborative Project Delivery Options:

  • Public-Private Partnerships (P3)
  • Early Contractor Involvement (ECI) aka Progressive Design-build
  • Alliance Contracting
  • Integrated Project Delivery


Familiarity with construction contracting would be an asset.

Seminar Objectives

  • Outline the traditional project delivery process and the inherent conflicts.
  • Describe the collaborative delivery processes with their benefits and difficulties.
  • Provide examples of both traditional and collaborative delivery and current trends.

Unique Features

A blend of lecture, group exercises and group discussions.

Target Audience

Intermediate engineers getting involved in delivery of public and private sector capital projects.
