On March 22, Mike Lehnen presented at the Design-Build Institute of America's conference Design-Build in Transportation, held in Portland, Oregon. His subject was "Los Angeles Metro's Regional Connector Transit Corridor – Building Underground in Downtown LA."
The Regional Connector Transit Corridor Project represents a critical link in Metro's regional transit infrastructure network. The presentation of this underground urban transportation design-build mega-project highlighted Metro's approach to implementation of the project, the challenges faced by the owner, contractor, and designer, and how those challenges were overcome in an integrated project delivery environment. The presentation also described the use of model-based design and its impact on the design development and review process.
Mike's copresenters were Rick Clarke of LA Metro and Greg Zwiep of Skanska USA.
