Webinar Recording: “Don’t Miss Out on Design-Build”

Mar 18, 2020 | Publications

“Design-build” refers to a project delivery method in which an entity both designs and constructs a project. School districts are increasingly using this method to reduce costs, obtain unique design features and expedite completion. But, in order to achieve these potential benefits, districts need to fully understand and follow the design-build process, which includes many key steps. DWK will guide you through the process and discuss how to maximize benefits and avoid pitfalls.

Join DWK Shareholder Deidree Sakai and Special Counsel Reid Shannon in this CASBO Partner webinar for a deep-dive into this project delivery method from initial planning to procurement to contract negotiation, and get an understanding of the major considerations you’ll need to know if your district decides to undertake a design-build project!
