USC Architecture - Design Build: Success Stories, Strategies and Techniques (Los Angeles, CA)

USC Architecture - Design Build: Success Stories, Strategies and Techniques

Offered at USC on Friday, July 13, 2012

The challenge of being successful with Design Build projects depends on the owner and how you define your role within the team. Defining and understanding the owner’s goals and vision for a project prioritizes what is critical to success and the roles and responsibilities that outline who does what on a project. Clarifying your level of effort and what is a reasonable expectation of reward can make the Integrated Process of Design-Build (IDP-B) a very effective business model. The focus for the exchange of ideas regarding the IDP-B normally comes from the contractor’s perspective of managing the design and construction process. These roles and responsibilities can change with each project. Is there a possibility for shared profit on projects and what would that look like? How does a high profile designer and iconic building design evolve in the IDP-B process? Will the contractor and sub-contractor modify the original design intent and destroy the vision of the design team? As the economic landscape continues to change and the focus of obtaining the very best value becomes an even higher priority, what should the next be in embracing an Integrated Design Build Process? Participants through case study reviews and conversations with experts will discover how the IDP-B process plays out at various scale levels.
