Types of Design-Build Entities

The Design-Build Institute of America (DBIA) recently adopted a position paper expressing no preference for the type of Design-Build entity that may contract with an owner.

Different types of Design-Build entities include the following:
  • Contractor with a designer (architect/engineer) as a subconsultant
  • Designer with a contractor as a subcontractor
  • Joint venture between a contractor and designer
  • Entity with in-house design and construction capabilities
