The City of Dunedin owns and operates a Reverse Osmosis (RO) Water Treatment Plant (WTP) that produces high quality potable water for its consumers. The plant requires refurbishment and the City has decided to execute the rehabilitation via a progressive design-build paradigm. This paper will present some historical background on the plant, and discusses the reasons for choosing design-build approach compared to other procurement alternatives such as traditional design-bid-build or design-build. It will present the City’s reasoning for the decision making process during detailed design phase from the City’s perspective. This paper gives a unique look into the owner’s perspective of project execution and design.
