Alternate project delivery methods offer unique opportunities for creativity and value

A Commitment to 'Design-Build Done Right'

Hennebery Eddy is active in exploring and advocating Design-Build Done Right™, an initiative from the Design Build Institute of America (DBIA) that can provide great creativity, innovation, and value for both the owner and the project team. Through these principles, the opportunity to bring expertise and experience to bear early — at the most critical moments of project development — helps create a collaborative alliance between designers and builders.

Understanding Best Practices for Success

Alternative delivery methods provide an opportunity to develop and rely on a target value design strategy that capitalizes on the expertise and creativity of each team member. Whether CM/GC, design-build, public-private partnerships (PPP), or aspirational integrated project delivery (IPD), alternative methods encourage working together as a unified group to meet design, cost, and schedule goals. Depending on the owner’s project goals and the state of the economy, each method has its own set of advantages and disadvantages. A solid understanding of target value design and other alternative delivery best practices is the cornerstone for project success. Our team is happy to work with you to determine what method best suits your project.
