Preparing for Design-Build Projects: A Primer for Owners, Engineers, and Contractors is a professional reference that covers the basics of developing a design-build project. In recent years, design-build (DB) contracting has increasingly become the method of choice in public and private construction projects. This book acts as a timely guide on developing DB requests for qualification and requests for proposals. It also assists the reader in interpreting these documents in order to prepare a responsive DB proposal or to evaluate a series of proposals and make a source selection decision. A useful resource for many designers and builders, the book also features learning modules that break down the decision-making process and reassemble it as a straightforward method for DB projects from the owner’s standpoint. 296 pp.
