Governor Andrew Cuomo
It’s impossible to talk about design-build in New York without talking about its biggest champion, Governor Andrew Cuomo. Thanks to his leadership, there are many high-profile design-build projects across the state of New York demonstrating to the entire nation the cost and time efficiencies that come with design-build. Whether it’s the former Tappan Zee (now named the Mario M. Cuomo Bridge), the Javits Center or the Kosciuszko bridge, Andrew Cuomo has led an infrastructure renaissance with design-build authority at the helm. In a state that’s been historically slow to adopt design-build, the Governor has remained a steadfast supporter and with each successful project has elevated the conversation making it impossible to ignore – design-build delivers in New York and with full authority could bring even more success to the state’s impressive infrastructure renaissance.
