New South Wales, Sydney, Australia
The government of Australia came up with a proposal to construct a bio-diversity park spanning 457 acres in New South Wales, Australia. It should feature a display of about 500 varieties of 80 species of fruit yielding plants along with various ecosystems. The park should be completed by 2024. Hence the government hired APIC CONSULTANTS to select the best project delivery system, financial contract type and procurement method for the project.
There were four main challenges faced by this project:
Maintaining a fast-track schedule, while controlling costs. A very significant criteria that weighs 20 in the evaluation matrix (goal 1 ).
Prioritizing the safety of workers and the public. Safety of the workers is again a very important criteria; therefore it weighs 25 in the evaluation matrix (goal 2).
▪ creating a unified cohesive team at the management level that included several individuals from the owner, and many other organizations. Since
inging together a dedicated team for such an enormous project is a very important factor to be able to meet the cost and deadline requirements, the criterion weighs 20 in the evaluation matrix (goal3).
▪ Meeting the deadline for the 2023, while setting an industry standard for future design-build projects. For the supplier, it was extremely important that the deadline is met with no cost ove
un the Government budget. Meeting the deadline is very important for the government as well as the general public, this criterion secures 35 in the evaluation matrix (goal 4).
Project delivery
1. Design Bid Build:
Although this delivery system results in minimum total cost of construction, but it poses some threats as well. Since this type of system is primarily based on lowest price, the contractor is not always very qualified, takes time in getting familiar with the designing team and gaining trust of his team members.
2. CM @risk:
This system nullifies the abovementioned risks but is very time consuming, since it needs a large number of subcontractors for different types of work and requires the construction manager to keep a fair account for overhead costs and report contingencies, if any.
3. Design build:
The best project delivery system now a days is the design build system where a general contractor undertakes all responsibility of the project from start to finish, render designs, keeps a check on the costs incu
ed and deliver the completed project right on time
    Goal    Criteria Weight    Project Delivery Systems                         
              Method 1         Method 2         Method 3     
              Score    Weighted score    Score    Weighted score    Score    Weighted score
    1.    20    3     60    6    120    7    140
    2.    25    3     75    3     75    6     150

The design bid build method does not fulfill any of the criteria to a significant level, hence this is the least favorable method for project delivery. However since this method will result in no extra costs, it will fulfill goal 1 to a certain extent. Hence this project delivery method scores 3 out of 10 in the evaluation matrix. Safety of the workers is also ensured to some extent in this method (because it is a slow motion project delivery type), goal 2 scores 2 out of 10. The rest of the criteria also will not be able to meet expectations with the design bid build method, hence they each score 2 out of 10 in the evaluation matrix.
CM @risk method will ensure delivery of the project on time while keeping costs to a minimum, hence this method is most favorable for achieving goal 1 and goal 4. Hence this scores 6 out of 10 for the mentioned criteria. Because a large number of contractors and sub-contractors are involved in the project, creating a unified and diligent team will be a tedious task. So goal 3 will be difficult to achieve. Hence this scores 4 in the evaluation matrix. Goal 2 scores 3 in the evaluation matrix because they will not be significantly affected when choosing CM @risk delivery method.
With the Design Build method, the project will...
