Brian Papernik Receives 2014 "Design-Build in Transportation Leadership Award"
Nossaman Partner Brian Papernik received a "2014 Design-Build in Transportation Leadership Award" from the Design-Build Institute of America (DBIA) in the Industry Professional/Practitioner category. The awards serve to honor agencies and individuals from across the country that have made critical strides to advance and expand design-build project delivery within the transportation sector.
For more than 15 years, Brian Papernik has been a key player in the design-build industry, helping public agencies use innovative contracts for transportation projects. The design-build contracts he developed for the $1.3-billion T-REX project in Denver, as well as contracts for the Minnesota and Utah DOTs, have been used as models by many other agencies. His work also includes major P3 contracts for the Texas, Oregon and Georgia DOTs, as well as the Utah DOT's award-winning $1.1-billion I-15 CORE design-build project. During the past two years, Mr. Papernik has been the lead attorney for the California High-Speed Rail Authority's multi-billion-dollar design-build program. He has also been instrumental in developing best practices for design-build projects, including publishing several articles on alternative technical concepts and contributing to DBIA's resource materials.
Award winners are selected by DBIA's Transportation Committee from nominations from across the industry.
