DESIGN-BUILD//BEST PRACTICES understanding of pre-award practices that owners need to embrace to realize the benefits of design-build. We have more work to do to identify and agree on pre-award best practices for design-builders and the best practices that make a difference after contract award. Clearly, there are best practices that successful design-builders consistently use, but we haven't captured them yet. That's on our to-do list for future updates to the document. What area of this document do you believe is most critical for industry adoption? ©2013, Ames construction, Inc.

By definition, each one individually is fundamental to project success. It's also the case that collectively they reflect the reality that design-build is different from other project delivery methods, and owners and practitioners need to approach design-build with that in mind. 16 DIANA HOAG IS A SENIOR CONSULTANT WITH THE XCELSI GROUP.
