Meridian City Hall
33 E. Broadway Avenue
Meridian, ID 83642

Join us for another Lunch & Learn Session - this time we will be hosting a webinar series on the subject of Design-Build projects.  This webinar series is hosted by NIGP, put on by the Design-Build Institute of America.  

Come out to Meridian City Hall to catch this webinar - Design-Build Done Right® – Contracting for Design-Build Services

The use of fair and clear contracts is fundamental to any delivery process. Because there are some important differences between design-build contracts and those for other delivery systems, it is particularly important for the individuals who administer the design-build procurement and contract execution to understand the contract’s language and its practical application. The construction industry currently tends to focus on the contract between the owner and design-builder. For design-build to succeed, however, the principles must also be incorporated into the contracts of those subconsultants, subcontractors and major suppliers working within the design-build team. This presentation will be a follow-on to the procuring phase and focus on the effort to structure contracts and contractor involvement in a fair and collaborative manner at the prime and sub-contract levels. It will discuss/review:

  • Recap of the meaning of Design-Build Done Right® and the Development of Universal Best Practices
  • In depth discussion of the 3 (three) DBIA Universal Best Practices and the 18 (eighteen) associated Implementing Techniques related to Contracting for Design-Build Services and considerations during formation of contract terms and conditions for Design-Build Services


Please register here through IPPA so that we have a head-count for the event by November 13.  Cost is free to attendees unless CEUs are desired - must also register separately here.  Use Code: NIGPMBR to receive DBIA Member Pricing. This will be a "brown bag style" lunch for those who attend this in-person event.  Any questions, contact Shannon Shaffer, Events Chair, [email protected].

We look forward to seeing you there!
