Abstract:

Project delivery systems currently used in the United States can broadly be divided into three principal categories design-bid-build, construction management at risk, and design-build. Over the past decade as owners, in both the private and public sectors, have pushed for faster delivery and lower costs for their projects, design-build has been increasingly heralded as the optimum solution for most situations. Recent research has supported such claims showing design-build outperforming the other systems in terms of cost and schedule, while equaling or exceeding the other systems in quality performance.
