One of the most impactful consequences of choosing a delivery method is whether the Owner will have the opportunity to take advantage of the builder's experience on cost, schedule and constructability with respect to architectural and engineering design.
In design-build and construction management delivery, the design-builder or construction manager is involved in the pre-construction phase of the project, and thus able to perform what is known as value engineering — reviewing the design to ensure the project is buildable as designed; can be completed on the anticipated schedule and within the available budget; ensures the Owner is getting the most value from its investment; and prevents costly or inefficient maintenance for the life of the project. The earlier in the planning process that effort is brought to bear, the greater the impact it can have on cost and schedule.
