In a study crunching data from 1998 through 2018, the Construction Industry Institute concluded that design-build projects are fast, reliable, and cost-effective.
What is design build? It’s a construction project delivery method where the designer and contractor work on the same team. It’s a form of single-source contracting, and the best part is that a building owner only needs to work with one entity — known as the design-builder.
Design-build is the opposite of the traditional form of construction where an owner might work with multiple entities, from architects to subcontractors and everything in between.
