The Weitz Company, a national full-service construction firm, announces that Alex Westlind, engineering manager, The Weitz Company, will present, “Design Build vs. Design Bid Build” at the upcoming “Exchange 2015” event for The Grain Elevator and Processing Society (GEAPS). Brian Utoft, associate/senior designer, VAA LLC, will co-present.
“There has been considerable debate in recent years over the merits of the Design Build vs. the Design Bid Build construction delivery method,” says Westlind. “Proponents of the Design Build method site savings in time and money for the owner, while opponents of the method claim it limits the client’s involvement in the design with the added risk of contractors making design decision outside their realm of expertise.”
The “Design Build vs. Design Bid Build” presentation at GEAPS Exchange 2015 on Tuesday, February 24 at 2 p.m. will compare and contrast the two construction delivery methods to help clients choose the best process for their next construction project.
