The Three Pillars for Design-Build Success | FMI

The Three Pillars for Design-Build Success

How to leverage people, processes and infrastructure in positioning your company for success in the design-build space

As one of the fastest-growing and most popular construction project delivery methods in the U.S., design-build is pushing industry stakeholders to drive collaboration and problem-solving on their projects. Collaborating and executing projects more effectively have become particularly critical in today’s ongoing pandemic world, where many owners face drastic budget shortfalls and resource constraints.

Over the last several years, FMI set out to examine the key factors and characteristics most contributing to a firm’s success in design-build. Through this exercise, we’ve learned that it takes three things to make these initiatives tick: people, processes and infrastructure.

In this white paper, we explore the three pillars that underpin a successful design-build approach for E&C companies of all sizes and across all customer verticals. These three pillars—people, processes and infrastructure—apply both to companies that are already in the design-build realm and those that are making their first foray into it. Additionally, differentiating a firm’s approach to design-build compared to design-bid-build is a key success factor.
