ALTERNATIVE PROJECT DELIVERY
In the mid-1950s, Yonkers negotiated one of the first modern-day design-build contracts for the Yonkers Raceway. Since then, Yonkers has completed a number of notable design-build projects that have benefited from Yonkers’ ability to bring value-added solutions.
Significant benefits to alternative project delivery can be achieved with the leadership of an experienced contractor, such as Yonkers, working in collaboration with the designer and owner. Our flexibility and interactive relationships with owners and designers have resulted in improved cost, schedule and quality performance. Significant maintenance and life cycle cost benefits have also been achieved.
A notable example of the benefit of “alternative project delivery” frameworks was demonstrated in the aftermath of the 9/11/01 terrorist attacks. Starting with no more than a few sketches and the city’s need to restore PATH service as quickly as possible, Yonkers successfully led the contractor team to work in partnership with the PANYNJ and its engineers in a design-build framework to rebuild and reopen the WTC PATH commuter rail facility in a remarkable 22 months.
Yonkers’ technical knowledge, experience with design-build as a project delivery system, and creative approach, combined with strength in infrastructure construction makes Yonkers an ideal design-build partner.
