Design-Build Done Right for Owners
Developing a Procurement Strategy

Crowder Construction
6409 Brookshire Blvd.
Charlotte, NC 28216 (map)

More Information

An owner’s choice of project delivery system and procurement approach strongly influence project results. When choosing design-build, an owner must implement a procurement/acquisition plan that enhances collaboration and the other benefits of design-build. This workshop will provide a high level overview of the synergistic elements critical to a successful acquisition strategy. It will focus on performance-based requirements including how to determine functional/operational requirements, goals and restraints, and correlation of goals to performance characteristics; provide an overview of the two-phase design-build source selection process – shortlisting to the most highly qualified teams, as well as the final selection of the best team for the project; and how design-build incentive contracting promotes cooperation, teamwork, collaboration and helps parties achieve extraordinary success.
