Design-Build Project Delivery: "It’s the fastest growing and most popular method used to deliver construction projects in America." What is Design-Build and what do research studies tell us about it compares to other project delivery methods in terms of cost growth, schedule growth, and delivery speed? Presentation will review how Design-Build differs from other project delivery methods (Design-Bid-Build , Construction Management at Risk, Multi-prime) reviewing delivery method structures, procurement characteristics, and contract administration implications for successful project delivery. Discussion will also delve into how risk factor impacts differ when using design-build in a vertical (building) versus a horizontal (transportation) environment. Discussion will present how organizations need to be process adaptive and flexible to manage design-build contracts for best results.
