Every owner is faced with the decision about which project delivery method to choose when embarking on a construction project. This decision needs to take into account how the project will be designed and constructed – and, therefore, delivered. There are multiple options for delivery methods and variations within each, allowing an owner to tailor their needs within these options. The most popular of these include:
Design-Bid-Build (DBB) – The traditional project delivery method customarily involves three sequential project phases: design, procurement, and construction.
Construction Management At Risk (CMAR) – A project delivery method whereby a Construction Manager acts as a consultant to the owner in the development and design phases, but assumes the risk for construction performance as the general contractor holding all trade subcontracts during the construction phase. This delivery method is also called CM/GC.
Design-Build (DB) – A project delivery method that combines architectural and engineering design services with construction performance under one contract.
Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) – A project delivery method that requires collaboration among the primary parties – owner, designer, and builder – so that the risk, responsibility, and liability for project delivery are mutually managed and properly shared.
Agency Construction Management (CM-Agent) – The owner utilizes a construction manager as its agent to advise on and/or manage the process throughout the entire project, or during specific phases of the project. The use of CM-Agent can be built into any project delivery method.
There are advantages and disadvantages for each specific method. Several fundamental project considerations are directly influenced by the delivery method selected. These considerations include budget, schedule, responsive design process, risk assessment followed by risk allocation, and level of expertise available or needed. When these factors are properly evaluated, a good decision can be made on the selection of a project delivery method that best suits the needs of the owner and the project.
