SMHI Prefers Design-Build Project Delivery

The Deputy Minister of Saskatchewan Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure (SMHI) has indicated his intentions to introduce the Design-Build (D-B) project delivery method as his preferred path to deliver more roads within existing Ministry budgets.  He argues that D-B introduces innovation into the system, and allows the marketplace to be more creative in the delivery of their projects.

To facilitate the transition to D-B, SMHI has set up a D-B Steering Committee and D-B Working Group with representation from SMHI, Saskatchewan Heavy Construction Association, and ACEC-SK.  ACEC-SK conducted elections for representatives on these bodies, with Patrick Lalach selected as the ACEC-SK Steering Committee representative , and Derrick Tannahill and Michael Walker selected as the ACEC-SK Working Group representatives.
