Design-Build Project Delivery

Design-Build Project Delivery 

Sidney Levy

Preference :

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 designs and build processes include third party relationships, owner contracts with design consultant, and then owner contracts with the 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.
