Michael McKenna and Jennifer Budd will discuss “Design-Assist: What Is It and What Am I Getting Into?” at ARTBA’s 13th Annual Law & Regulatory Conference on June 24, 2020.
Contractors, owners, and designers are increasingly encountering the design-assist model in lieu of the traditional design-bid-build. What is design-assist and how does it differ from design-build and performance specifications? Mike and Jen will define the term, provides examples, and examine the model’s potential benefits and pitfalls. They will also discuss what parties should consider early on when contracting, and ways to mitigate risk when using design-assist.
