Traditional construction projects began with an owner hiring an architect to develop plans, and then seek a general contractor to hire and bid out the project costs. This method left too many variables open for misinterpretation and the project subject to over pricing and extended completion dates. The Design-Build construction procurement method was developed to resolve those types of issues by creating a collaborative team environment that fosters communication and sharing of best practices and pricing between the project owner, architect and general contractor.
