Alternative Contracting

As the name suggests, alternative contracting is an alternative project delivery method used to supplement traditional low-bid, design-bid-build contracting. Alternative contracting often uses new, innovative practices to decrease project delivery time, reduce construction time, improve safety, and reduce costs.

TDOT uses two methods of alternative contracting – Design-Build and Construction Manager-General Contractor (CMGC).
