DESIGN | BUILD | MANAGE
Design, build and manage refers to a Project Delivery System which a single entity provides with all services necessary. It is a single point of responsibility. We like this approach because it gives us the responsibility to meet the performance requirements, which has wide latitude, consistent with good industry practices.
Following this approach it minimizes the risks and obligations for scheduling and coordinating the work. This approach will also reduces the clients’ risk for claims and cost increases on the project.
Often, the client provides a performance specification to which the design build and manage team
can then prepare the final designs and approvals. It is willing to compensate the team for changes in the work. All suppliers and specialty contractors are hired directly by the design, build and manage team. The team can select the method of subcontracting: unit price, fixed price, etc.
