Special emphasis was placed on the design team's use of innovation to add value. "Innovation" included the use of new systems, methods and processes that benefited cost, efficiency/speed, safety and quality. "The inherent flexibility of the design-build process allowed Ryan to get the project superstructure and other critical components underway prior to finalizing the building's exterior image," said Goodpaster, "This provided adequate time for decisions to be made by the numerous stakeholders while keeping the project on schedule."
The State of Minnesota was seeking a fast track, design-build project to provide new space to meet Department of Revenue and Capitol Area Architectural Board requirements. Ryan Companies completed the $77,443,000 design-build project ahead of the ambitious 16-month schedule and the building was fully occupied 2 weeks earlier than the deadline. In applying the design-build process, Ryan guaranteed the design, schedule and price of the project from start to finish. "Though the State had never utilized design-build, it realized it could not meet it's schedule with the traditional "plan and spec" method of construction," said Patrick Ryan Patrick Ryan may refer to:
