A project delivery method consists of design, construction and other services that are required for executing, organizing and completing a building. Before initiating your project, as a client you should take time out to explore the project delivery methods and selecting the one that is best for your project. By choosing the right one for the project, you reduce overall risk, and can better manage the overall budget and schedule.
Design-bid-build refers to the sequential phases of this project delivery method. DBB begins with the selection of an architect who designs the project, followed by the submittal of a construction bid where the owner selects a contractor, who implements the design.
Disadvantages of Design-bid-build
Design-build is a construction delivery system in which the design and construction services are contracted by a single point of contact known as the design-builder or design-build contractor. This single entity holds responsibility for pre-construction briefing, design development and various construction stages of the project.
