In the Partnering delivery process, the general contractor and a design entity are selected by the owner to work together as a team throughout the design and construction process.
Some of the key elements include:
- The owner holds a contract with both general contractor and the design entity. This may require the owner to mediate differences between the builder and designer.
- The contractor’s involvement early in the planning and design process allows for cost accountability to be maintained
- Schedules can be accelerated because of the team approach
Similar to the Design Build / Sole Responsibility process, the owner derives the benefit of the team working together throughout design and construction. The success of the project depends heavily on the ability of the builder and design entity to work together successfully.
