DESIGN-BUILD & BRIDGING DOCUMENTS
Design-Build can be an advantageous delivery method for certain projects; however, the true desire of the owner may not be adequately documented to obtain comparable construction bids. Bridging documents are a good solution to this problem. Bridging documents can be quickly prepared by a design team independent of the contractor and are often the best solution because they convert the owner's goals into clear industry language. Competitive proposals from multiple design-build contractors can then be obtained where the contractors are free to differentiate themselves based on the enhanced value they can bring.
