Abstract:
From 1985 to 2010, the design-build project delivery method has increased in utilization in the United States from 5% to 45% in non-residential construction. Our economy depends heavily on the jobs that the construction industry provides, and the majority of the work force that is employed by the construction industry is employed by subcontractors. Subcontractors are the backbone of the construction industry and are the trades the physically erect the projects in the field. This observation has brought about the concern to determine how subcontractors can become more profitable to keep our nation employed in the construction industry during good and bad economical times. When subcontractors succeed on projects they are able to provide more jobs. But, when times are tough, profit margins are critical in order for a subcontractor to keep their staff employed. The goal was to find out if profit margins were higher for projects using the design-build delivery method, over the traditional, design-bid-build delivery method. The information collected from the respondents in the construction industry also provided insight into the reason why subcontractors are able to better succeed in a design-build environment. The results have indicated that the design-build delivery method is beneficial to the profit margins of subcontractors.
