This presentation will highlight the benefits and risks associated with the industry standard form design-build contracts published by DBIA, ConsensusDocs, AIA and EJCDC. The discussion for owners, design-builders and designers will address philosophical approaches and such issues as when the design-builder enters the picture, bridging, program and design development, and when price is set. The presentation would also address how to apply best practice concepts in the standard forms and lessons learned to manuscripted contracts.
Attendees will better understand the philosophical differences among the different industry standard form design-build agreements.
Attendees will be better able to identify the challenges and benefits inherent in each industry group’s standard forms.
Attendees will be better positioned to select the design-build standard form that best suits the needs of their particular project.
Attendees will be able to apply design-build best practices found in the standard industry forms to non-standard form contracts.
