Design-Build RFPs - Acquiring Desired Results


 Meet the Speakers

Wylie Bearup, P.E., is currently serving as a Professor of Practice for the Arizona State University School of Sustainable Engineering and the Built Environment. Mr. Bearup recently retired from his position as City Engineer and Streets and Transportation Director at City of Phoenix in December which he started upon in 1999. Prior to this, Mr. Bearup was with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for 24 years. In 2004, he was selected as the City Engineer and, in 2008, he was named the Street Transportation Director. In that capacity Mr. Bearup was responsible for supervising a staff of 700 employees with an annual operating budget of $70 million and a five-year capital construction budget of $614 million. Much of this work was procured utilizing a variety of alternative delivery procurement. In 2011, he resumed the title of City Engineer in addition to his existing assignment as the Street Transportation Director through an organizational restructuring within the City. As City Engineer Mr. Bearup is responsible for overseeing the selection of architects, engineers and contractors to execute the City’s five-year, $3.4 billion Capital Improvement Program. He has BS and MS degrees from the University of Arizona in Civil Engineering and a Ph.D. in Construction Management from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Mr. Bearup was recently selected as one of the Top Ten Public Works Leaders in the country for 2013 by the American Public Works Association.
Jeff Goodale, AIA, leads HOK’s global justice practice from his home base in Chicago. With over 25 years of direct experience in the government and justice design community, Mr. Goodale has spent the last three years of his career at HOK after a decade at HDR. Further, he serves on HOK’s Board of Directors and as the chair of HOK’s Marketing Board, a group dedicated to positioning HOK in the current and future design market for sustained growth and increased relevance. His expertise includes master planning, programming, design, security consulting and construction management. Mr. Goodale has overseen projects both small and large and his experience encompasses diverse facility types, including federal, jails and detention, youth and juvenile, correctional/prison, courts and administration and public safety sectors. His experience also includes healthcare, mental health and other civic projects. One of his signature projects is the federal building at 101 West Congress Parkway, a project managed by the GSA and whose major tenant is the Department of Homeland Security.

Further, Mr. Goodale also is highly involved in HOK’s always evolving approach to project delivery. Project delivery models such as design-build and the fast emerging public private partnerships are dynamically changing the way projects are designed and built and the role of an architecture firm in this changing environment. This is more and more of critical importance to public entities that are struggling with improving depreciating facilities under the pressure of decreasing tax revenue bases. In addition to establishing new approaches within HOK, Mr. Goodale also partners with others throughout the design and construction industry to address these issues.
