NC DB and PPP QBS Experts

After September’s program these acronyms mean so much more. James Smith, Executive Director of ACEC/NC, and David Crawford, Executive Vice President of AIA/NC gave us the lowdown when it comes to NC House Bill 857. Passed last year, this authorized three new delivery methods for non-transportation projects in NC – design-build, design-build-bridging and public private partnerships. It also strengthened qualifications based selection by removing some of the loopholes. Next up on the agenda was NC House Bill 1043 – passed this year, it clarifies the sometimes confusing requirements for pre-qualification of bidders on construction projects. Finally, we talked PPPs. Now public entities have the option to use this as a funding method on projects. And remember – PPPs are a funding mechanism, not a delivery method. Thanks to everyone who attended! And be sure to check out the photos from the event.
