Construction Manager At-Risk – MDTA’s Experience on the Curtis Creek Bascule Bridge Rehabilitation Project

Speakers: William Pines & Don Marinelli

Topic Description: MDTA’s Office of Engineering and Construction and Hardesty & Hanover (H&H) worked together to complete MDTA’s first Construction Manager at Risk (CMAR) alternative delivery project for the Rehabilitation of the Curtis Creek Drawbridge. Innovation was needed in developing the contractual documents that incorporated the technical challenges associated with the movable bridge rehabilitation, and allowed for advanced design and procurement of long lead time items for specialty mechanical and electrical items. This presentation will describe the CMAR process and MDTA’s lessons learned from this project.

Date & Time: May 8, 6pm

Location: The Engineer's Club, Baltimore, Maryland
