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.
