Design-build is a method of project delivery in which one entity – the design-build team – works under a single contract with the owner to provide design and construction services. The design-build team has sole responsibility for all aspects of the job.

The designer and contractor work together from the beginning as a team, providing unified project recommendations to fit the owner's schedule and budget. Additionally, an integrated team is able to more readily incorporate and meet project and certification goals, such as BIM and LEED.

One entity, one contract, one unified flow of work from initial concept through completion – design-build streamlines project delivery through a single contract between the owner and the design-build team. This simple but fundamental difference saves money and time by transforming the relationship between designers and builders into an alliance that fosters collaboration and teamwork.
