|Location||Kittery, Maine and Portsmouth, New Hampshire|
|Award Sub-recipient||Maine Department of Transportation|
|Innovation||Construction Manager/General Contractor (CM/GC)|
|Award Fiscal Year||2014|
The Maine Department of Transportation is using the CM/GC delivery process on the Sarah Mildred Long (SML) Bridge replacement project. The many challenges and significant cost expected with the SML Bridge replacement project make it a prime candidate for taking advantage of the input and talents of the private sector early in the design process, leading to faster and more cost effective project delivery.
Although accelerated project delivery is one of the expected benefits of this contracting method, it is the cost reduction, cost containment and cost certainty advantages that make CM/GC the most attractive procurement option for this project.
