Design-build is a method of project delivery in which one entity - the design-build team - works under a single contract with the project owner to provide design and construction services. One entity, one contract, one unified flow of work from initial concept through completion. Design-build streamlines project delivery through a single contract between the owner and the design-build team. This simple but fundamental element saves money and time by transforming the relationship between designers and builders into an alliance which fosters collaboration and teamwork.
