Design-Build is one of the most common procurement models used in construction today. At its core is the requirement that a single source – or ‘design builder’ – be placed in charge of both the design and construction of a project. This requirement positively impacts the time required for these two phases as project scheduling can begin before the design is finalized. Design and construction done concurrently also allows for earlier establishment of project costs.
The owner additionally benefits with an increased level of collaboration between themselves, the designer and the contractor, as design changes can be made while receiving real-time understanding of resulting cost and schedule implications.
Benefits of Design-Build Delivery Model:
Single source of accountability
Reduces design time
Early establishment of project costs
Faster project completion

PDB is a qualifications-based process wherein an Owner “progresses” towards a design and contract price with the team. The selected Design Builder then delivers the project in two phases:
1. Preliminary/Preconstruction Services
2. Final Design and Construction Services
