Project Delivery Methods
How your project is contracted is an important decision. The project delivery methods most common are:
- Design-Bid-Build (Bid)
- CMA with a GMP (Negotiated)
- Design-Build with a GMP (Negotiated) or Fixed Cost (Bid)
- CM at Risk with a GMP (Negotiated)
Project size, complexity and timing can play a major role in the decision-making process, too. Corporate and procurement policies can also factor in the decision as to what project delivery method is used.
Many of our telecom clients use the design-bid-build method. Yet, Construction Manager at Risk with a Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP) is also very popular because it reduces risk and provides our clients with a higher degree of estimating reliability of probable cost during the design phase.
Design-build project delivery or turn-key method can be a very effective and risk mitigating approach for many data center owners, whether it is an enterprise data center or multi-tenant data center. The single-point responsibility can be the most compelling reason why an owner would choose the design-build approach. If fast-track scheduling is necessary for any number of reasons, design-build is by far and away the best method of contracting.
