Examine the standard procedures making up the life cycle of a design and build project in the latest publication in the Architecture in Practice Series. Author Andrew Mark Thomas provides commentary on the procurement route, specifics of design and build, and the documents which make up this environment. He then describes the process of tendering, how the contractor runs the project, the specific JCT conditions of contract, the consultants' roles, and a who's who of those involved in the project. Interspersed among this information are illustrated case studies demonstrating how Design and Build works in various countries.
