Design-Build Awareness

A “Design-Build” project is one in which one contractor is hired to design, construct and inspect the entire project. This method of construction is more costly and results, in among other things, the loss of checks and balances and potential jobs for PEF Members.

Attached HERE is a “Design-Build” informational fact sheet for you to view, download and share with your friends and family.  We need to educate the public about the “Design-Build” method of construction and the negative impact it could have on our PEF members.

Recently NYS Department of Transportation Commissioner Joan McDonald was interviewed by City and State magazine discussing transportation projects underway throughout the state, including “Design-Build.”  You can watch the City and State interview HERE
