CAE + DBIA Joint Presentation: How Does Design-Build Lead to Better Design Solutions?

Join AIA Seattle's Committee on Architecture for Education for a unique joint presentation with the Design Build Institute of America, focusing on how design-build works within construction of education spaces.

How does design-build lead to better design solutions?

Questions we will investigate during this program:

  • What does the architect gain from design-build? How does the owner benefit?
  • What factors really contribute most to success: Previous history together? Firm resumes? Individual resumes?
  • What are the biggest obstacles/challenges from the architects perspective?
  • How has the architect-owner relationship changed having the GC as the intermediary?
  • Why don’t some owners embrace the benefits Design-Build?
  • What are some of the best design examples delivered via Design-Build?
  • What are examples of Design-Build teams solving problems in unique ways?
