Sisters Creek Bridge Replacement Design-Build

Sisters Creek Bridge Replacement Design-Build

Challenge Design-Build Project Delivery Addressed:
FDOT has extensive experience using the design-build delivery method and FDOT District 2 has helped champion many complex projects using a two-phased, best value selection process. Design-build was selected as the preferred project delivery method primarily as a way to fast-track project delivery and the nature of the work. FDOT prefers the engineer and contractor be teamed together on high-level water crossings, as it maximizes the opportunity to achieve a lower bid, reduces the potential for cost overruns and reduces the construction duration.

Summary:
The Sisters Creek Bridge is an excellent example of the application of the design-build delivery method to drive innovation, community and environmental enhancements and best value for stakeholders. In collaboration with FDOT, the Archer Western/RS&H team overcame numerous project challenges, such as poor soils, pedestrian safety concerns and a constrained project site to deliver solutions in ways that were never thought possible. As a result, the community expressed resounding support for this project.
