Marin General Ultimately, the best value solution evolved into a progressive design-build delivery method.

GREENBRAE, CA—The Marin General Hospital replacement project originally started out using a traditional design-bid-build model, but later converted to progressive design-build/PDB after the team was challenged by the owner to customize a solution to the unique risks, constraints and value preferences. Ultimately, the best value solution evolved into one that personifies the positive characteristics of a progressive design-build delivery method and overcame the contractual challenges of changing the delivery method mid-stream. In this exclusive, Simon Gregson, vice president of healthcare for McCarthy Building Companies Inc.’s Northern Pacific region, recently shared some insights into the progressive design-build process, how it differs from traditional methods, the value of PDB to the healthcare industry and how it helped elevate the Marin General Hospital replacement project.
