Design-Build vs. Design-Bid-Build Delivery Methods

The decision of how to put a developer’s or client’s vision into reality is as old as construction itself. As with most things in life, this decision always depends on how we can achieve what we want as quickly and cost-efficiently as possible. To complicate this issue, our industry has developed and marketed terms such as design-build and design-bid-build to quantify a variety of approaches. Both approaches or delivery methods have their pros and cons – mostly depending on the complexity, size and risk tolerances of any given project.
