Design-build projects around the country today are facing significant challenges due to the escalation of labor and materials as well as resource availability. The speakers in this session will discuss the reasons behind these matters, both regionally and nationally, and how the parties can mitigate the risks associated with escalation and resource availability both before the contract is signed and during the term of the project.

Learning Objectives:

  • Evaluate the forces driving escalation and resource unavailability in today's market
  • Assess owner and design-buildder risks in the pre-proposal phase
  • Allocate risk in the contract for escalation and resoure unavailability
  • Implement mitigation measures during the term of the project to minimize or eliminate the risks
