Since the early 2000’s when alternative delivery contract types were approved by the Arizona State legislature, preferences for contract types such as Low Bid, CMAR and Design-Build at individual public agencies have ebbed and flowed.
This virtual LMS event will feature a panel of Public Owners and Industry Representatives as they talk through the current state of APDM usage, individual preferences, recent experiences with all the different contract types, and what they foresee happening in the future of their respective area of influence.
NOTE: The date of this event is being revised to Wednesday, September 30th from the originally scheduled date of September 23rd.
Rebekah started the AZBEX publication in February 2010 and has since grown the service into a comprehensive resource for local Commercial Real Estate & A/E/C firms to find leads on upcoming projects, industry news, trends, and market insights. In 2015, AZBEX started producing events and in 2016, the AZBEX Database, now known as DATABEX, was launched. Both the events and database are engineered to bring opportunities to clients – whether it’s the contacts made at a half-day conference or monthly breakfast program or the early stage notice of a project in the database, every service of AZBEX is focused on bringing opportunity to clients. In her spare time (what spare time?!?), Rebekah enjoys cooking, hiking and playing with her three kids. It is her dream to read and travel more. Realistically, that’ll happen when the youngest turns 18.
