From a leading authority in the design-build movement, this practical, multi-disciplinary guide brings you all of the fundamentals that constructors, architects, and engineers must understand in order to mitigate risks, optimize results, and be successful in the design-build arena. Design-Build Essentials is truly a design-builder's resource, addressing the unique integration of both design and construction functions by featuring input from all of the various players associated with delivering a design-build project. Opening with an introduction to the industry and fundamental distinctions of design-build, the book progresses to cover managing the design-build process, the integrated design build team, and concludes with a look at the future of the industry.
