New GC/CM Wastewater Treatment Facility Dedicated

On June 24, 2014, the City of Bellingham (WA) officially dedicated its newly expanded wastewater treatment facility at Post Point.  

GC/CM:  The $50 million project was accomplished through the use of the General Contractor/Construction Manager (GC/CM) project delivery method, a form of Construction Manager at Risk that many states permit on public projects.

My advisory role:  As I have done with many projects, I was the City's advisor on GC/CM related issues, including assisting them with obtaining approval to use the process, contractor selection, negotiation of costs with the contractor, and review of changes and pay applications.  I also provided training to the City and the contractor on some of the implementation issues of GC/CM related to Washington's state law (RCW 39.10).
