Chris Matthews, PE, is a Certified Project Manager with ARCADIS in Columbia, MD. For more than 15 years,
Matthews has been a member of the EJCDC and has twice served as its Chair. In an article published by the National Association of Surety Bond Producers in their Spring 2015 edition of Surety Bond Quarterly, Matthews shares his knowledgeable assessment of how municipalities of all sizes can benefit from P3s. He says, “My experience in privatized municipal wastewater P3 contracts includes acting as a private entity owner and manager, as well as a design-builder and operator of these systems. These experiences fostered my belief that the greatest potential for savings lies with the use of a private entity that will employ a true fast-track, design-build construction process, combined with a related operations group that has input to the design.” Click the link below to read the entire article.
