New law could help Nebraska state park construction projects

New law could help Nebraska state park construction projects

Nebraska’s state parks could see faster construction of cabins, aquariums and other amenities under a new state law designed to save time on projects and possibly reduce costs.

The new law will allow the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission to hire a project’s designers and builders at the same time, instead of bidding out parts of the job separately.

The “design-build” approach typically allows one firm to take on the whole project, ensuring that all players work collaboratively while avoiding last-minute design changes.

Sen. John Stinner, of Gering, who introduced the law, says it’s an effective way to get projects designed and built in a timely manner. Game and Parks commission officials requested the law in hopes of using on future projects.
