Technical ProgramUnderstanding Risk in Design-Build Schedules
The design-build delivery method presents additional challenges to the development and management of a project schedule.  Detailed scope is under development for the first phase of the project, and as more information becomes available, design and construction operation plans change.  Unlike a schedule for a traditional design-bid-build project, a design-build schedule can be extremely volatile in its early stages.  This paper highlights the added variables to schedule management present in the design-build delivery method and evaluates the inherent schedule risks during each phase of a design-build project.  Ms. Colbert provides insights to both design-builders and owners to better understand how schedule risk evolves through each design-build phase based on her experiences with the design-build delivery method in public transportation projects .
