A second Design-Build Workshop will be held January 30, 2014 in Orlando at the Doubletree Hotel.  The success of the August Workshop has lead us to hosting this second Workshop to focus on post-award stages of the DB procurement process.  The Department has used and will continue to use the design-build method of project delivery.  Considering the changes in the design-build process over the last 18 months and the volume of design-build projects, this workshop is an opportunity for everyone intimately involved in design-build projects to get together, face-to-face, to learn and discuss the details of the FDOT design-build process.
