What Is Design-Build?

Design-build is a project delivery system in which the Owner selects a single entity to take on responsibility for both the design and the construction of a capital project. It differs from systems such as design-bid-build, in which the owner holds separate contracts with the designer (architect or engineer) and the builder (general contractor or construction manager). As 2009 Chairman of the Design-Build Institute of America (DBIA), Tom knows how design-build can benefit the Owner and other project participants.
