• Why the Design-Build Method was Selected
• Benefits & Challenges during Procurement, Design, and Construction
• How the Design-Build Method Helped the Team Tackle Financial and Design Challenges Spurred by COVID-19.
Demonstrate the benefits of the Design-Build method during the lifespan of the project.

Discuss unconventional and creative ways the Design-Build team served the client when the entire aviation industry was hit hard by the pandemic.
