Nov 10, 2017 9:30am ‐ Nov 10, 2017 10:45am

Credits: None available.

Standard: $35.00


Design-build is often seen as a means to: transfer project risk to the design-builder; or a means to reduce overall project cost or cost growth; or reduce the project schedule. This perspective misses one of the absolute key benefits of design-build, and that is the extraordinary design excellence that a team can bring to the problem, whether it be aesthetics (architectural excellence), process (engineering excellence) or both. The benefits of having the contractor, sub- and specialty contractors with the design team is powerful.

Learning Objectives:

  • Owner defines design excellence based on what they want to achieve
  • Design excellence governs
  • Work with a Design Build professional to guide the procurement and delivery process
  • Owner is a key member of the cohesive team throughout the entire process
