Abstract

Construction manager–general contractor (CMGC) is an alternative project delivery method that is fast becoming more prevalently used to accelerate the delivery of highway projects. FHWA's Every Day Counts program is encouraging state departments of transportation (DOTs) to adopt CMGC as a tool to deliver badly needed rapid renewal projects. As part of the program, a CMGC Peer Exchange conference was held in June 2011 in Salt Lake City, Utah. This paper synthesizes the tools used in implementing CMGC project delivery that were reported in those conference presentations by state DOTs with CMGC experience. That information is compared with similar information found in the literature to document the current state-of-the-practice in CMGC highway project delivery. It is concluded that jointly managing risk and developing a collaborative business climate are the two most important aspects of successful CMGC project delivery.
