Be a master builder and seize the opportunity to not only design but also construct your projects.

For years, lawyers and insurers have told architects they cannot guarantee construction prices or completion dates or take responsibility for the actual construction of what they design. In reality, by structuring projects carefully and intelligently, architects can lead design build teams without undue risk. Understand how architects can form strategic alliances with general contractors, market their design build capabilities and maintain greater control over their projects, all while minimizing their risks and seeking potentially greater earnings.

This topic instructs architects on how to contract directly with owners as the prime member of a design build team and subcontract the actual construction to a general contractor teammate. The DesignerLed Design Build program, developed decades ago by Schiff Hardin Construction Law Group partner, Mark C. Friedlander, has helped many architects and engineers return to the once exalted status of master builders by seizing the opportunity to construct the projects they design.

Learning Objectives
  • You will be able to explain Sequential DesignerLed Design Build, a more practical approach than the Single Contract approach used in most industry group standard form construction contracts.
  • You will be able to determine how architects can bifurcate their design build practice into separate design and construction companies that bring the architects liabilities in line with traditional design practices.
  • You will be able to recognize how architects can use their design build capability to market their traditional design services more effectively.
  • You will be able to discuss the benefits of using an architect led design build business model.
