Principles and Best Practices for Progressive Design-Build
06/07/2022 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM
Do you have an upcoming project where cost and schedule certainty are critical?
Are project costs increasing on your design-bid-build projects?
Do you have the funding to build projects, but not enough in-house project management staff?
Do you want to take your projects to the next level with total collaboration?
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, progressive design-build might be the ideal collaborative-delivery method for your next water/wastewater project.
So, what is progressive design-build (PDB)? PDB is a delivery process that facilitates collaboration between the three primary roles of the project—the owner, designer, and builder—during the earliest stages of project development, ensuring that all parties work together as a single team in developing innovative project solutions. The process gives the owner control of decisions and risk, while providing the design-builder the ability to manage the constructability, schedule, and cost to meet the desired outcome. Three components that make PDB an excellent delivery method include collaboration, schedule acceleration, and cost certainty.
