Convention seminar explores similarities, differences of integrated project delivery, design-build.
Interest in alternative project delivery methods, especially design-build and construction management, has been on the rise for more than 30 years. In 2008, the American Institute of Architects (AIA) released its integrated project delivery documents for the construction industry.
Burns & McDonnell Vice President and General Counsel G. William Quatman, Esq., FAIA, DBIA, joins Martin Sell, AIA, NCARB, in identifying the key differences and similarities between the design-build and integrated project delivery. The interactive session is designed to help attendees evaluate which AIA documents are most suitable for their use.
The presentation is at 2 p.m. on Friday, May 1, in room 3014 West of the Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco.
