Design-Build for Illinois Schools
The Illinois House of Representatives recently passed legislation (HB5593) that establishes a pilot program for Illinois school districts to use Design-Build as a construction delivery method. Design-build has several advantages over traditional design-bid-build and CM at risk construction such as:
- Faster project delivery speeds
- Lower costs
- Higher quality results
Design-build has proven to be a cost-effective and reliable construction delivery method nation-wide and we are excited that Illinois schools can now take advantage of its benefits. To read more about design-build check out our design-build resources for schools.
