                                    Owner Topics & Training

Whether you are a Private Owner, Public Agency, Public Utility or a Developer, traditional methods of Project Delivery are being replaced by alternative methods of project delivery. One of these alternative delivery methods is Design-Build. According to the Design Build Institute of America (DBIA) “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.”
