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 total design and construction services.
Utilizing this approach, an owner typically provides the design-builder with a programmatic detail of the building it desires, specifying the size, types of spaces and acceptable construction types and materials, etc. The design-builder then prepares a firm, fixed price to design and construct the project.
