Abstract

This study reviews the use of Design/Build (D/B) and Construction Management (CM) as alternative delivery systems that allow for project fast-tracking and improve results in terms of cost, quality and relationships among participants. The literature is reviewed and the recent construction of the Allmerica Financial Parking Garage project in Worcester, MA is analyzed in detail. In this case study a contractual CM approach was used but the project performed under an informal D/B mindset leading to a successful project.
