On its next capital construction project, would your water or wastewater utility like to achieve
  • Seven percent lower cost
  • Thirteen percent faster construction

Written for water and wastewater utility management, engineers, planners, city officials, utility policymakers, regulators, and design-build contractors, the book covers all topics:

  • Steps to prepare for a design-build project
  • Procuring a design-builder
  • Executing design-build projects and performing acceptance tests
