Design Build –
Is a project delivery method used in the construction industry that provides an owner (i.e., A city agency) with a single point of contact for both design
and construction phases of a project.
One entity is responsible under a single contract to provide design and construction services, including estimating, schematic design, design documents, construction supervision and construction.
A bill was approved in June 2019 by the New York State Senate and Assembly authorizing the use of design-build for New York City agencies. Governor Cuomo signed the bill into law on December 31, 2019.
