Learn more about joining the PD leadership group, or learn about other volunteer opportunities across the organization.

The Design-Build Institute of Americas has published a series of Design-Build Best Practices for both public and private construction as well as Federal procurement. Understanding the Best Practices and developing implementation strategies based on the best practices leads to improved project outcomes, including higher quality, better value, and reduced risk and best of all – more professional satisfaction. Design Build Done Right – i.e. Best Practices is broken down into three phases of the project: Procurement, Contracting and Execution. Please find those two PDF documents below for your viewing.
There are also two PDF whitepapers below from Haskell and Brown & Caldwell that address progressive design build best value and benefits. Progressive Design-Build combines the benefits of design-build (DB), including single-point of accountability, with the benefits of construction-management-at-risk (CMAR), including preconstruction services and owner input throughout the project execution.This delivery method offers many significant benefits to an owner over traditional delivery methods, such as design-bid-build.#best practices #ProjectDeliveryKnowledgeCommunity #projectdelivery #BestPractices #DesignBuild #federal
