Lanl history with design build

LANL History with Design Build

  • First true D-B – FITS, 1998

  • 3 Line Items (Supercomp. Ctr, NISC, EOC)

  • 6 GPP Office Buildings (many more ongoing)

  • Now using D-B for a process system

    • a Rad Liquid Waste pumping/storage building


Experience lessons learned

Experience/Lessons Learned

  • With us, Contract Awards are rarely to the same AE/Contractor team twice, so

    • Good “performance” specs are necessary since

      • there’s not always knowledge of LANL Engineering Standards (some out-of-state AEs)

      • there’s not a good job = future work incentive


D b request for proposals specifying

D-B Request for Proposals -- Specifying

  • Two main methods have been used at LANL:

    • Line Items: Trimmed down ESM (std design criteria) plus Details, Construction Specs, and Drafting Manual

    • GPPs: Proj Mgmt Div produced hybrid “Performance Specs” for this purpose

      • Attempts to combine Des Criteria and Specs

      • Master Constr Specs with design requirements and substantiation verbage added

        • AE then takes this back out

      • Labor intensive for LANL and AE

  • Trying to eliminate this second method in favor of the first

    • If AEs being used settle down, could just give them all Site Standards on CD to lock them in
