      Design—build places the responsibility for design errors and omissions on the design—builder, relieving the owner of major legal and managerial responsibilities. And project teams can reduce projects costs, add value and move forward with cohesive certainty. Traditional large design-bid-build projects will see both in-state and out-of-state contractors submitting ridiculously low bids in order to win the project, then force their sub-contractors which are often local to lower their costs so they can meet the low-bid they offered. Every architecture firm could benefit by using it as a checklist.

Open book methodology confirms what should be included in the Target Cost and open book reimbursement. Access protocols must be implemented and the Freedom of Information Act complied with. Creating a team-oriented approach promotes high levels of communication and transparency, both imperative to the success of any project.

      A project that is not scheduled properly might be substantially delayed. Become familiar with accounting systems and evaluating contract profitability.
