1. Gregory G. Nadeau FHWA Deputy Administrator Inaugural Webinar on the National Center for Accelerated Bridge Construction March 11, 2011

2. EDC Model Vision Rapid changes facing the highway community at all levels in the 21st century Adapting to those changes must be a central focus of the FHWA.  Every Day Counts captures what I believe to be the sense of urgency with which we must pursue innovation.  Every Day Counts will seek to identify and deploy innovation as its highly focused mission.  It is my goal to reach out and engage FHWA employees as well as external stakeholders to deliver innovation that will enable us to become faster, better and smarter. Victor Mendez, FHWA Fall Business Meeting 2009

3. EDC Model Leadership EDC Requires Top Down and Bottom Up Approach Agency leadership must prioritize initiatives Project delivery personnel must be committed Requires mid-level management champions “Front lines of project delivery”

4. EDC Partners and Stakeholders AASHTO ACEC AGC of America APWA ARTBA LTAP’s & TTAP’s NACE ……….and growing.

5. EDC Innovation Summits Ten regional summits All State DOTs, DC, Guam, Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico participated 988 participants

6. Who Was There? By December 14th, all states, DC, Guam, Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico participated in the summits, and over 988 front line officials in the transportation community will have engaged in this process. Approximately 60% of the attendees were State DOT officials.

Deliverables: * Decision Making Framework for use during planning stage * Training, Showcases, Webinars, Specifications for PBES elements, ABC manual, Conference Attendance, Awards Program, Demonstration Projects, Process for engaging public in Decision Making process * Research to quantify environmental impacts reduce by using PBES * Model Specification/Contract Language, Details - Standard Plans Deliverables: * Decision Making Framework for use during planning stage * Training, Showcases, Webinars, Specifications for PBES elements, ABC manual, Conference Attendance, Awards Program, Demonstration Projects, Process for engaging public in Decision Making process * Research to quantify environmental impacts reduce by using PBES * Model Specification/Contract Language, Details - Standard Plans

14. Design Build Design-build is a method of project delivery in which the design and construction phases of a project are combined into one contract, usually awarded on either a low bid or best-value basis. This can provide significant time savings compared with the more traditional design-bid-build approach where the design and construction services must be undertaken in sequence.

15. Construction Manager / General Contractor (CMGC) The “Construction Manager / General Contractor” (CM/GC) project delivery method is widely used in the vertical construction industry; however, it has only been evaluated by a few transportation agencies for horizontal construction. With this method the owner contracts with a construction management firm for constructability input during design process. Generally at 60%-90% design completion, the owner and the CM firm negotiate a ‘guaranteed maximum price’ for construction. If successful, the owner signs a contract with the CM firm for the construction of the project. The CM firm becomes a general contractor responsible for scope and schedule at the guaranteed maximum price. This method is also called Construction Manager @ Risk, General Contractor/Construction Manager (GC/CM), and Construction Manager as Constructor (CMc).

16. Selected Initiatives

17. EDC Going Forward Together, we can create a national transportation innovation deployment network The state based approach will result in the development of a national network of transportation professionals skilled in rapid deployment of innovation Upon completion of the ten Regional Innovation Summits, over 1000 key stakeholders will be part of the network.Upon completion of the ten Regional Innovation Summits, over 1000 key stakeholders will be part of the network.

18. Sustaining the Network AASHTO/FHWA Collaboration Invite stakeholder participation Evaluate and track progress of current initiatives Formulate next round of initiatives Assess AASHTO-AGC-ARTBA proposals Sources of Innovation  AASHTO and FHWA should consider establishing a working group to develop a framework of how we can support and sustain this effort on an ongoing basis from an organizational standpoint. This effort should include EDC stakeholders as well.   AASHTO and FHWA should also initiate the formulation of the next round of EDC initiatives, beginning with assessing the proposals submitted to Administrator Mendez from the AASHTO- AGC- ARBTA Joint Working Group. Timing of new initiatives must take into account progress of current initiatives and organizational capacity to implement.  AASHTO and FHWA should consider establishing a working group to develop a framework of how we can support and sustain this effort on an ongoing basis from an organizational standpoint.
