Reflections on 25 Years of DB Deals

by Nancy Smith, Nossaman LLP

The list of U.S. Transportation Design-Build Projects on the previous pages shows that transportation agencies are increasingly relying on design-build for project delivery. The list would be considerably longer if it included design-build contracts associated with public-private partnerships.

(Editor’s note: There have been 25 DB projects awarded to 13 different contractors since 1993 that  are part of P3s (DBFOM, DBFM).  The DB contract award prices on these 25 projects total $21.2 billion. Ferrovial has the lion’s share U.S. of the P3 market, with five DB contracts worth $6.3 billion.)
