Design-Build Project Delivery


Design-Build Project Delivery

Design-build is a project delivery system with a record of reducing overall project
costs and bringing capital facilities on-line more rapidly. But its true value may
be in the cultural changes it effects in the process. Other design and build
processes include third party relationships, owner contracts with design consultant
and then owner contracts with builder, each party to the process having
their own agenda and their own concerns, which frequently do not mesh.

Design-build offers a somewhat different approach. The collaborative effort
that develops as owners work with design consultants and contractors from
project genesis through design development and into construction creates an
environment of trust as problems arise. These problems are then discussed, dealt
with and resolved as a team. This working together toward a common goal—
the successful completion of a construction project—may just be design-build’s
lasting legacy.
