DBIA milestone: 2011, Ohio embraces design-build — part 2
DBIA
After 134 years of using multi-prime project delivery, Ohio was finally willing to look into authorizing design-build in the spring of 2011. DBIA had met with the newly elected Governor, John Kasich, who had signaled strong support for procurement reform, and momentum appeared to be on our side.

Design-build projects and work zone safety and mobility
FHWA
Design-build projects have become more prevalent as agencies seek to speed up projects and leverage resources.

Army, GSA aim for 'net zero' energy use
Federal Times
Since early 2011, the Army's Fort Detrick, Md., has been on a mission to use only as much energy as it produces by fiscal 2020. It has installed energy-efficient lighting and upgraded boilers and is planning to construct a solar field that produces 20 megawatts of solar power. The progress that Fort Detrick and 16 other installations have made in becoming more energy-efficient and environmentally conscious has led the Army to begin expanding its "Net Zero" program to all 156 of its installations by the end of the year.
