  • Progressive Design-Build Best Practices

    Contains 4 Component(s), Includes Credits Recorded On: 04/11/2019

    CONTENT EXPIRES: December 31, 2021​ One application of design-build delivery is via a stepped, or progressive process (commonly referred to as Progressive Design-Build or PDB). PDB uses a qualifications-based or best value selection, followed by a process whereby the owner then "progresses" towards a design and contract price with the team (thus the term "Progressive"). This application of design-build has long been used in the private sector and is now gaining traction with public Owners, as well. This session will explore how DBIA's existing Design-Build Done Righta best practices apply to Progressive Design-Build (PDB) and explore additional best practices that can guide exceptional outcomes.
