Abstract: To support aircraft carrier maintenance at Puget Sound Naval Shipyard & Intermediate Maintenance Facility, the U.S. Navy retained BergerABAM to develop a request for proposal (RFP) for the replacement of Pier B and the retrofit of Quaywall 729. Due to a confined design and construction schedule for the design/build (D/B) team, the substructure design of Quaywall 729 was performed by BergerABAM and incorporated into the RFP document as a prescriptive design. This paper highlights the benefits and challenges associated with the combination of D/B with prescriptive requirements (design/bid/build) from the development of the RFP package through final design and construction by the D/B team.
