Alternate Delivery at Benesch
Benesch continues to be involved in exciting alternate delivery projects across the country. The firm has contributed to high-profile Construction Manager/General Contractor (CMGC) projects such as MemFix4 in Tennessee and I-40 in North Carolina—the state’s first-ever CMGC-delivered project.
In Michigan, Benesch is currently serving as the lead design firm for the DOT’s Bridge Bundling Pilot Program, which is using design-build delivery—an approach traditionally reserved for state-owned structures—to address infrastructure improvements at 19 locally-owned bridge locations.
