Project Delivery Systems

This report examines the degree to which three existing project delivery systems—design-bid-build, design-build and construction management at risk (CM-at-risk)—are being used in the buildings sector. It reveals how owners, architects and contractors perceive the benefits, drivers and obstacles for each delivery system. In addition, the report explores the awareness, use, benefits and drivers for two emerging delivery systems—integrated project delivery and design-build-operate/maintain.
