What is Design-Build?

 

Design-build is a method of project delivery in which one entity – the design-build team – works under a single contract with the project owner to provide design and construction services. One entity, one contract, one unified flow of work from initial concept through completion. Design-build is also known as design/construct and single-source responsibility. Across the country and around the world, design-build successfully delivers office buildings, schools, stadiums, transportation and water infrastructure projects with superior results.

 Over the past 15 years, use of design-build has greatly accelerated in the United States, making this delivery method one of the most significant trends in design and construction today.

One Contract, One Integrated Team

Design-build streamlines project delivery through a single contract between the owner and the design-build team. This simple but fundamental difference saves money and time by transforming the relationship between designers and builders into an alliance which fosters collaboration and teamwork.

The Design-Build Advantage:

Owner/Agency Benefits

Faster Delivery — collaborative project management means work is completed faster with fewer problems.

Cost Savings — an integrated team is geared toward efficiency and innovation.

Better Quality — design-builders meet performance needs, not minimum design requirements, often developing innovations to deliver a better project than initially imagined.

Singular Responsibility — one entity is held accountable for cost, schedule and performance.

Decreased Administrative Burden — owners can focus on the project rather than managing disparate contracts.

Reduced Risk — the design-build team assumes additional risk.

Reduced Litigation Claims — by closing warranty gaps owners virtually eliminate litigation claims.
