DBIA-Houston Chapter Hosting October 21 Luncheon

The DBIA-Houston Chapter is proud to announce their next chapter luncheon presentation “Let’s Make a Deal – Negotiating the $1.75B Progressive Design-Build Delivery for Houston’s Northeast Water Purification Plant” will be held October 21, 2019 from 11:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. at The Downtown Club Houston Center in Houston.

The City of Houston is the midst of delivering a 320 MGD expansion to the Northeast Water Purification Plant using progressive design-build. The project is estimated to cost around $1.75B. The budget has increased significantly since the proposal phase as the Design-Builder, Ownership group, and Owner’s Advisor have collaboratively advanced the design and construction. In the process, seven amendments have been negotiated and executed. The process of negotiating amendments on a mega-project is difficult and has required the project teams to focus on what’s right and not who’s right. This presentation by Ravi Kaleyatodi and Paul Walker will share the story of the project and the negotiations that are leading to the successful completion of the largest WTP project in the United States.
