Design-bid-build services

What is Design Bid Build?

Design-bid-build (DBB) is the most basic and commonly used traditional project delivery method in which the customer hires separate contractors for the design and construction of a project. DBB is also sometimes referred to as Design-tender. On DBB projects a customer’s preferred choice of architect completes the design documentation, then the customer searches for bids from contractors to perform constructional work. The customer is responsible for bearing all the risks in these types of projects as this method is not collaborative, so there is no contact between the designing party and the construction contractors. DBB projects are mostly employed where low construction costs are required as a bidding competition takes place for the selection of a construction contractor.

Design-bid-build process

METCO’s DBB service has three sequential phases that do not overlap, this means no phase can be started without the completion of the previous phase.
