DBIA has compiled a variety of resources to help you and your project team navigate the world of integrated project delivery. From general market trend data to sample contract documents, everything about design-build you need can be found in the DBIA Resources section.  Additional materials include:  the DBIA project database, DBIA’s IQ Magazine, key research findings and industry news.
Within this section you will also find an overview of key principles consistently present when design-build performs at its best, with a focus on concepts that experience and research have demonstrated work consistently and achieve the best results. Once basic design-build concepts are mastered, those involved in the project delivery process can use the flexibility inherent in design-build to then develop specific approaches as needed to address particular circumstances to achieve an optimum outcome.
DBIA Members: The Member-Only Content page is available. When you log in, you will automaticaly be directed to that page.

The Design-Build Project Delivery Method: 

  • Accounts for nearly 40% of nonresidential design and construction
  • Decreases an owner's administrative burden via the single point of responsibility contract; this way owners can focus on the project rather than managing disparate contracts
  • Virtually eliminates litigation claims for owners
  • Optimizes the use of innovations such as BIM and Lean concepts
