Summary

Use this book to recognize potentially devastating design-build risks—then develop a plan to ensure you have them covered.

Design-build construction is an increasingly popular construction approach, but it does increase risks and present new risk management challenges. In addition to taking on greater design liability, contractors who act as design-builders must be on top of issues such as performance guarantees, licensing requirements, ownership of design documents, indemnification, and a variety of other potential risks.

Failure to recognize and plan for these risks can be devastating.
