traNsportatIoN//state of the sector Phelps and the city agreed to enter into a guaranteed maximum price contract for completion of the design and construction. If the city and Hensel Phelps failed to come to an agreement, the city reserved its right to direct Hensel Phelps to proceed with design to the next stage; remove the project element from the contract and pursue other delivery methods; or terminate the contract. According to Hensel Phelps, these “off ramps” motivated the design-build team to perform effectively in order to avoid losing project elements or having the contract cancelled altogether. In the end, Hensel Phelps successfully negotiated each element of the program, many at the 30 percent design stage, resulting in a final contract totaling approximately $669.9 million. coLocatIoN, coLocatIoN, coLocatIoN While the contract was a motivating force, both the owner and the team assembled by Hensel Phelps and Fentress Architects attribute much of the project’s success to colocation of the team within one office building. Day-to-day decision makers were located on one floor. The walls were lowered to encourage camaraderie and communication as well as candid discussions and quick decisions. For the city, colocation at this level was a new experience. David Maas, deputy director of the Mineta San Jose International Airport, singled out the colocation of the owner, contractor, architect and MEP design-build contractors as key to the project’s success, noting that critical stakeholders like the Federal Aviation Administration and the Transportation Security Administration were included, too. Writing in support of the project’s DBIA award, Maas said, “This teaming environment exceeded our highest expectations and coupled with the team’s ability to work with the Department of Public Works and the airport to plan, sequence and schedule the work has been a key ingredient in our success.” stayINg the course Among the challenges this truly integrated team encountered and overcame was a $90 million budget deficit at the beginning of the project. According to Hensel Phelps, realigning the scope of the project with the budget was accomplished because the team was able to react quickly, give reliable guaranteed pricing and make decisions that could be executed within the allotted time. Within the first four months, the team identified the scope of work and received owner approval. That new scope certainly didn’t compromise the airport’s goals. Sustainability remained a major component for reasons related to both the environment and life-cycle costs. In addition to the solar farm, the newly constructed Terminal B is rated LEED® Silver. State-of-the-art baggage screening and the unique “Air Chairs” with their many outlets make Mineta one of the most technologically advanced airports in the country. user feedBack Back to the end users: The many plug-in options and free WiFi are probably the most yelped about aspects of the renovation. A longtime San Jose resident praised the improved terminal: “Finally! We actually look like we put our technology to use! Aren’t we in Silicon Valley? Beautiful? Yes. Big? Indeed. Do I like it? Yes, and I love the light that shines through the vast walkway to gates and baggage claim.” / sNapshot project Name: Mineta San Jose International Airport Terminal Improvement design-Builder and general contractor: Hensel Phelps Construction Co. owner/developer: City of San Jose architects: Fentress Architects engineers: Martin/Martin; Magnusson Klemencic Associates specialty contractors: Rosendin Electric; Critchfield Mechanical; Transbay Fire Protection; Granite Construction Company; Architectural Glass and Aluminum other significant team Members: Fentress Architects; TranSystems; Watry Design; Orsee Design Associates; Jacobs Consultancy; Ambient Energy; BNP Associates, Inc.; Horton Lees Brogden Lighting Design; VSA Associates; Nolte Engineering; Kleinfelder Engineering; Ninyo & Moore 12 spring//2012 the quarterly publication of the design-build institute of america
