In this process:

The objective is to create a single point of responsibility contract, which can reduce risk for the project owner. This can also 
streamline the delivery schedule by overlapping the design phase and construction phase of a project.

  • An Owner hires a construction company and design professionals, under a single contract, as a team for the project.
  • The two organizations then become the single point of responsibility for the entire project.
  • The team is responsible for delivering both the design documents (plans & specs) and construction services according to the owner’s project requirements.
