The traditional design-bid-build involves finding the least expensive architect who has the least expensive support design engineers who then find the least expensive general contractor who uses the least expensive sub-trades to build a project. This process is optimized to lowest failure. It has been a breeding ground for lawsuits for decades due to inevitable cost overruns, redesigns to fit budgets and change orders. To avoid this merriment of challenges, government entities and the private sector have been turning to design build.
While there are many variations of construction delivery systems, most fall into one of two primary construction delivery systems used in the public and private sectors. These two categories are (1) the traditional design-bid-build and (2) the increasingly common design-build approaches.
Design-build has become a preferred way of building many government facilities because of the many advantages associated with this process. While there are many variations of construction delivery systems, most fall into one of two primary construction delivery systems used in the public and private sectors. These two categories are (1) the traditional design-bid-build and (2) the increasingly common design-build approaches.
There are many variables in building a new facility. The location and design play a big role in the functionality as well as the financial feasibility of the facility. The design-build delivery system streamlines the process of building a functional facility on a set budget. In the beginning of the design-build process, owners work with a realtor to find the location. Then, a general contractor helps the owner determine the facility needs and a budget to work with. After the basics are covered, they determine if there are extra budget dollars to work with or value-engineering needs to consider to make the numbers work.
