Tuesday, January 26, 3:45 PM-5:15 PM
SEMINAR 57 (INTERMEDIATE): How Does the Criterion Engineer’s Role Affect the Design Build Contractor’s and Design Build Engineer’s Roles during All Phases of a Design Build Project?
Chair: Alonzo Blalock, P.E., Member, Jacobs Engineering Group, Fort Worth, TX

Building owners will often retain a Criterion Engineer (CE) to establish the initial design criteria for a project. The CE will create documents that will be handed off to the Design Build contractor. After this, the role of the CE can vary. The direction of the project can be very dependent on the CE involvement after bridging documents are completed. This seminar discusses the issues that can arise as the owner and Design Build contractor interpret the bridging documents and how open or closed a line of communication is with the CE during all phases of a Design Build project.
