    Lunch & Learn Series: Understanding Project Delivery Methods

    Thursday Jan 15
    11:30 am - 1 pm

    200 University Street, Seattle, WA 98101

    Attendees will learn which type of delivery model to utilize is one of the many important decisions owners must make when the need for a new or renovated facility has been identified. Bill will introduce the three most common delivery methods:
     - Design-Bid-Build (DBB)
     - CM at Risk (GCCM)
     - Design Build (DB)
     Speaker: Bill Kent DBIA, LEED AP, Construction Executive, Mortenson Construction. Bill will discuss how each different method influences behaviors, allocates risks, and impacts project administration.
     Bill is currently the President of the Northwest Region of the Design Build Institute of America (DBIA). He is also a member of the faculty of the DBIA traveling across the country teaching the Fundamentals and Principles of Design Build. During his 28 years as a Construction Executive with Mortenson Construction, he has focused on delivering projects utilizing the alternative delivery methods of design build and CM at Risk (GCCM).
