  • RULE 3- No party should accept responsibility for problems created by other parties.
  • RULE 4- Risk and rewards should be proportional for all parties.
  • RULE 5- Risk allocation should create a winning situation for all parties.

Three Major Project Delivery Methods We Follow

Single Source Responsibility—Design-Build Project Delivery

Single source responsibility project delivery is accomplished by one entity that is responsible to the owner for delivery of both the design and construction of the project. This delivery system is often referred to as design-build or turnkey.

Dual Source Responsibility—General Contracting Project Delivery

Dual source responsibility project delivery is accomplished by two entities that are responsible by contract to the owner but not to each other. One entity is responsible for design and the other for construction. The construction entity is usually a general contracting firm; thus, this system is often referred to as general contracting project delivery. Designer selection is usually accomplished by negotiations while the selection of the general contractor can be by either a price bid or negotiated basis.

General Contracting Project Delivery—Dual Source Responsibility


Advisory Construction Management—Triple Source Responsibility


Triple Source Responsibility—Advisory Construction Management

Triple source responsibility project delivery is actually an adaptation of the general contracting delivery system with the difference being that a construction manager joins the designer and the contractor as the third party responsible by contract to the owner. The construction manager is an advisory to the owner and provides management services for the project. Thus, this system is typically referred to as advisory construction management project delivery.
