Need To Know

Design-Build is sometimes compared to the “master builder” approach, one of the oldest forms of construction procedure. Comparing design-build to the traditional method of procurement, the authors of “Design-Build Contracting Handbook” noted that: “[…] from a historical perspective the so-called traditional approach is actually a very recent concept, only being in use approximately 150 years. In contrast, the design-build concept — also known as the “master builder” concept—has been reported as being in use for over four millennia.”[2]

“The traditional approach for construction projects consists of the appointment of a designer on one side, and the appointment of a contractor on the other side. The design-build procurement route changes the traditional sequence of work. It answers the client’s wishes for a single-point of responsibility in an attempt to reduce risks and overall costs. It is now commonly used in many countries and forms of contracts are widely available.

Although the Design-Build Institute of America (DBIA) takes the position that design-build can be led by a contractor, a designer, a developer or a joint venture, as long as a the design-build entity holds a single contract for both design and construction, some architects have suggested that Architect-led Design-Build is a specific approach to design-build.”
