RS&H design of the Veterans Memorial Bridge in Martin County, Florida, was among Design Build Institute of America’s 2016 Award Winners. “Completed in 2014, the bridge is a premier example of the design-build approach meeting challenging schedules and fostering innovation to produce a cost-effective project,” said DBIA in its press release.  The award cited that three organized legal challenges threatened to halt the project: a federal injunction, National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) challenges, and permitting challenges. It went on to say that the team never gave up pursuit of project acceptance, permit approvals, design, and construction. As a result, a once controversial project is now considered a resounding success by all stakeholders.

"By showcasing design-build best practices, teaming techniques, contracting methods, and ways to drive innovation, winners of National Design-Build Project/Team Awards provide examples to the rest of the industry on how to achieve Design-Build Done Right," said Lisa Washington, CAE, Executive Director/CEO of DBIA.
