Design-Build Project Delivery

In traditional project delivery, an owner must manage two separate contracts: designer and contractor. With Design-Build Project Delivery, the designer and contractor are on the same team. This provides the owner with both unified recommendations and accountability during the entire project cycle - from design to build-out.

Core & Main is a staunch supporter of Design-Build Project Delivery, and advocates Early Supplier Involvement within the process as a key partner on any Design-Build project team. Our robust training and advanced certification of our associates entrust Core & Main to serve as the supplier partner of choice for all Design-Build Treatment Plant projects nationwide.
