    Hi all,

    We are looking at moving into the design build delivery and wanted to see if anyone out there has a contract template they could share.  Most of my work is negotiated or GC so I currently do not have a template to start with.

    Hi, Tim - we do a lot of Design-Build work and use the DBIA suite of contracts. They are reasonably priced and fair to both parties. You should consider joining DBIA as they have a lot of great resources available. Good luck! We have found D-B to be an excellent delivery process that benefits the client.

    Our preferred family of contracts are the ConsensusDocs series of contracts.  For cost plus, Design/ Build arrangements, the 410 form worked well to align our responsibilities and those of the owner.  (Form 415 if it was lump sum D/B)
