About The Design-Build Deskbook
The design-build method of project delivery has continued to grow over the last few decades. Among the primary reasons for the growth of design-build are the need by project owners to limit their exposure to designer-contractor conflicts, as well as to accelerate and streamline the process by using a single designer-contractor team. Because many states regulate both designers and builders, forming a design-build entity can be a complex undertaking, and one that can vary by jurisdiction.
This new edition of The Design-Build Deskbook continues to be a primary reference on design-build for lawyers and construction professionals alike. Designed to provide quick answers to your multi-state questions, The Design-Build Deskbook comprehensively outlines both statutory provisions and relevant case law addressing legal requirements for design-build contracts. At the heart of this updated work are current summaries of design-build laws, helping you identify the licensing and public procurement requirements that directly impact design-builders for each of the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and all Canadian provinces and territories.
Bringing together the expertise of over 90 prominent construction attorneys, the summary of state statutes and case law governing the design-build process in provides fingertip access to the multi-jurisdictional information you need to:
Ensure that the design-build entity is properly organized and licensed
Guard against bid protests seeking to set aside successful procurement
Coordinate the provisions of the design-build agreement and subcontract agreements
Safeguard the integrity of professional and contracting licenses
In addition to the state summaries, informative introductory chapters address underlying issues common to all jurisdictions, and provide maps indicating which jurisdictions share similar laws on several relevant topics.
