Oregon Department of State Lands Office

Challenge Design-Build Project Delivery Addressed

The owner researched alternative delivery methods choosing the design-build method for this project. Factors considered were budget, timeline, several stakeholders and potential political review. The owner obtained an experienced certified design-build contracting officer and project manager to oversee the project. The executives agreed the project would be a successful Design-Build Done Right® project.


The Oregon Department of State Lands Office project involved the renovation of approximately 13,000 square feet of existing office space on the ground floor of the Oregon Department of State Lands Building, including demolition, new finishes, and mechanical and electrical improvements to be coordinated with the owner’s selection and purchase of new furniture systems. Additional scope included controls upgrades for the entire building. This was the first design-build project from the Oregon Department of Administrative Services.
