Eileen Diepenbrock, with assistance from Jennifer Dauer, co-authored a chapter on the role of subcontractors in alternative project delivery systems, in the book “Construction Subcontracting, A Comprehensive Practical and Legal Guide”, published by the ABA Forum on the Construction Industry.
The traditional role of subcontractors in a design-bid-build context has been well established and understood. Ms. Diepenbrock’s chapter explores the role of subcontractor expertise, collaboration and risk-sharing in alternative forms of procurement, including design-build, public-private partnerships and construction manager at risk. A significant part of Ms. Diepenbrock’s expertise is in government contracting, including alternative forms of project delivery.
