with megaprojects and the unique challenges that you have where you're spending
maybe millions of dollars a day to complete
your project."

Consider Construction
Strategies
Port Everglades decided to use a managing general contractor (construction
manager at risk) to accelerate the delivery
and manage risk for its STNE project. It
brought in the managing GC when the
design was 60 percent complete. "That

method of delivery allows for collaboration
and an exchange of ideas between design
engineers and the contractors on the best
and fastest way to implement the project,"
said Anderson. Although the port originally
planned to use two general contractors - one
for constructing the berth space and another
for the crane rail structures - they eventually chose one contractor for both, enabling
better coordination of subcontractors' work
schedules on a very complex project.
For its new terminal, Port Canaveral
focused first on the design of the project's

waterside improvements since that permitting and regulatory process is longer.
That process started last spring. A landside
design competition will kick off this fall.
"We will shortlist three teams, and we will
have them submit their best design," said
Crowe. The firms that don't get selected
receive a $20,000 design stipend, and the
port obtains the intellectual property rights
to any design ideas submitted.

Get the Best Value
Port authorities consider a variety of
factors to ensure they're getting the most
benefit from their engineers and contractors
for every dollar they spend.
For the Gerald Desmond Bridge, the
Port of Long Beach invited experienced,
highly-qualified engineering and construction teams to submit proposals. "The
amount of innovation that we saw in those
proposals was quite frankly amazing," said
Kenagy. The winning proposal included
several features that minimized the amount
of land required for the project, reserving
acres of valuable port land for other uses.
Port Canaveral looks carefully at the credentials of a contractor's onsite management
staff. "We want to know upfront the resume
and the experience of who they are proposing to put on the job, because that's what
makes the job or breaks it," said Crowe.
To minimize risk, the port generally
prefers the project design to be close to
100 percent complete before bidding begins.
"However, we do have very targeted specific
value engineering processes in our bid documents, so we really do look at those contractors to think outside the box, to submit
value engineering proposals that save not just
money but that can also be big time savers."
Project managers should always consider a project's long-term ramifications.
The Port of Long Beach and the California
Department of Transportation decided
mid-project to modify and strengthen certain critical elements in the bridge structure
to meet the latest seismic design guidelines.
"That obviously had a cost and schedule
impact, but they were for the benefit of the
project, which is designed to last 100 years,"
said Kenagy.
Making decisions based on long-term
benefits is a great motivator, said Coda.
"Just try to think in terms of those next
50 years, because most of our projects will
last that long."  ●
