Description

An Empirical Study of Resource Expenditure Efficiency Impact of Single-Step (Turnkey) Design-Build An Empirical Study of Resource Expenditure & Efficiency Impact of Single-Step (Turnkey) Design-Build This proposal is a response to DBIAs Call for Research to obtain key data comparing single-step or turnkey design-build (DB) to two-step DB. The choice between these two approaches often impacts the outcome of a project. Additionally, this choice also impacts the relative investments of several unsuccessful offerors, who often spend valuable resources proposing on projects. This research will collect and analyze data to explain the unfair burden that turnkey DB processes place on the industry, particularly when it comes to solicitations that require extensive technical proposals as part of a turnkey process. The study will quantitatively explore performance differences between the turnkey and two-step design-build processes with respect to cost, schedule, quality, overhead, and risk performance of construction projects.
