The list includes the DBIA Award winning University of Chicago Campus North Residential Commons.
Project Freeway: U.S. 60 Rogersville has received the National Award of Merit from the Design-Build Institute of America. The $35 million project brought safety improvements to a four-mile section of Route 60 in Rogersville.
It now competes nationally for the Project of the Year.
University of California, Davis
UC Davis is building quite a record of success in using the design-build process for new construction — that is, for each project, contracting with a single entity for more efficiency in getting the job done.

Driving down system cost, Siphonic Horizontal pipe installed dead level, NO Pitch. Smaller diameter pipe generates cost savings and reduction in consumption of raw materials. Pipe routing controlled by the designer, not impacted by restrictions of pitched pipe. Less Ponding creates safer roof designs. High efficient roof drains reduce the number of drains and roof penetrations. System performance videos available. READ MORE

You can’t get much more different than a hamburger restaurant and a major urban highway project, but now the Dallas Shake Shack and the Horseshoe Project have something in common — each has won a national award from the Design-Build Institute of America in its 2017 Design-Build/Team Awards.

ODOT was planning to bid out the project, which bypasses 80 intersections and 30 traffic signals, in early 2011 as a three-stage project, building the middle section first. However, that same year, the Ohio Legislature passed a law allowing P3s, broadening ODOT‘s construction options.
Roads & Bridges
The U.S. Department of Transportation (U.S. DOT) yesterday announced that the Build America Bureau will provide a $152.2 million TIFIA loan to the Riverside County Transportation Commission (RCTC), at 2.84% with a term of 35 years after substantial completion for the I-15 Express Lanes Corridor project.
Twelve water projects have made the initial cut in a new U.S. Environmental Protection Agency program and have been invited to file applications for loans under the Water Infrastructure Finance and Innovation Act, or WIFIA. In announcing the 12 projects on July 19, EPA noted that they are located in nine states. California leads the way with four projects, in Orange County, San Diego, San Francisco, and Morro Bay.
The invitees were selected from 43 that submitted letters of interest to EPA for the first-ever WIFIA loans.
New York and New Jersey's bi-state transportation agency on Tuesday began seeking proposals to develop a master plan for the $10 billion renovation of John F. Kennedy International Airport, a pet project of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo. ... Only certain firms will be considered. They must, for example, have completed a master plan in the last decade worth $5 million or more for a major hub airport serving at least 15 million air passengers.
Rebuilding and repairing U.S. infrastructure is imperative — and costly. It is estimated that the U.S. needs more than $1 trillion to help fix America’s deteriorating infrastructure. With the magnitude of that need and price tag, “traditional” funding options — namely taxes — simply can’t keep up. The alternative, as proposed by President Trump with support from both Republicans and Democrats in Congress, is to leverage the power of the private sector. While some may see this emphasis on public-private partnerships (P3s) as new infrastructure policy, this delivery model has proven valuable to taxpayers and infrastructure users for many years in several U.S. states and the rest of the world.
Neighborcare Health, Meridian Center for Health; Seattle / NBBJ
Partially funded by a federal grant, the Meridian Center for Health is a first of its kind: an integrated, one-stop model for health treatment and prevention for underserved Seattle-area residents. Uniting three health organizations under the same roof, the center provides low- to no-cost medical, dental, and mental health services for adults and children. Design elements include an open floor plan, a dramatic feature stair in the lobby, and a range of team and community spaces that remain available for neighborhood organizations after hours. The Center is tracking to receive LEED® Gold certification.
Leidos is seeking interested bidders for the Antarctic Infrastructure and Modernization for Science (AIMS) project, with an RFP anticipated in October. Learn what it’s like to do construction in Antarctica, why this project is not as risky as you think it is, RSVP to attend Industry Day on August 15, or request bid prequalification materials today.
Building Design + Construction
Mortenson has now developed what it’s claiming is a first-of-its-kind augmented reality (AR) mobile app that allows users to “see” what the second building of the Paul G. Allen Center for Computer Sciences and Engineering at the University of Washington in Seattle will look like, many months before its scheduled completion in January 2019.

Building Design + Construction
Over 120 workers from LF Driscoll and Balfour Beatty poured 6,540 cubic yards of concrete from 654 concrete trucks over a period of 14 straight hours. The concrete, which is being used to create the foundation of the new building, was poured onto 965 tons of reinforcement steel.
Commercial UAV News
As officials keep adding all these different tools to their toolset, they get more information, more data, and more options around to how best design, redesign and manage these facilities. These are critical details to explore, since they can allow officials to stop issues before they turn into problems, and that’s a serious consideration when you’re talking about issues like flooding.
Two West Limerick companies currently developing and commercialising an innovative water turbine device are continuing to make waves since being awarded EU funding a number of months ago.
Rathkeale-based engineering company DesignPro has created hydrokinetic turbines using technology developed by Newcastle West tidal energy company GKinetic.
This technology is completely unique and can produce a constant supply of zero-carbon energy by doubling the speed of water to the turbine.
To better understand silt fence performance, researchers at the Auburn University-Erosion and Sediment Control Testing Facility (AU-ESCTF) have evaluated three silt fence options to determine possible shortcomings using standardized full-scale testing methods. These methods subject silt fence practices to simulated, in-field conditions typically experienced on-site without the variability of field testing or the limited application of small-scale testing.
