less cost growth
than traditional design-bid-build
Projects using design-build (DB) cost less per square foot when compared to construction manager at risk (CMR) and design-bid-build (DBB). Design-build projects also average less cost growth than a comparably scoped project using CMR and DBB.
Design-build was also the best performing project delivery system in terms of schedule growth, delivery speed and construction speed.
BEHIND THE NUMBERS
DESIGN-BUILD IS THE FASTEST GROWING, MOST POPULAR DELIVERY SYSTEM IN THE NATION
Design-build will account for nearly half of all construction spending by 2021 with spending increasing 18% over the 2018-2021 period.
