The use of design-build project delivery in the public sector has increased rapidly since the early 1990s due to its advantages over traditional delivery methods, particularly in terms of shortening the overall project duration. Fast-track approaches are being applied to design-build projects to achieve the optimum schedule durations. While both fast-track projects and design-build project have been researched separately in the past, there is little published research on how they are truly integrated. Likewise, the research has shown the merits of partnering in design-build and fast-track projects separately, but not in an integrated model. The purpose of this study is to develop a fast-track partnering process model (FTPPM) that combines the fast-track approach with the partnering concept. The model is based on the analysis of the factors that influence successful fast-track processes. Seven key success vehicles were discovered using the factor analysis method. The FTPPM is composed of the preparation stage, the fast-track workshop stage, and the detailed design and construction stage. The activities for each stage for fast-track implementation are developed in consideration with seven key success vehicles for fast-track projects.
