The design-build project delivery method has been growing in popularity as owners, designers, and contractors experience the benefits it brings to the schedule, budget, and overall quality of the final product. Research conducted by the Fails Management Institute, as reported in this Construction Dive article, shows that 44 percent all projects nationwide will be delivered as design-build by 2021. As design-build shifts towards becoming a mainstream delivery method, we invite you to a panel discussion by local trade partners. In this SMPS Industry talk you will hear directly from an owner, contractor, architect, and engineer on why owners are moving towards this delivery method, trends they see, and best practices they recommend.  

Learning Objectives

  1. Successful techniques and avoid teaming pitfalls.  
  2. Possible future trends.

  4. Network with other firms who are looking to find industry partners.

Thursday, February 11, 2021 | 10:00 AM – 11:30 AM

CREW Portland is excited to host a unique and compelling discussion centered around connecting women and empowering them to push boundaries and break glass ceilings. We’ll highlight a collaborative project between local architecture, engineering design, and construction firms as they have teamed up with Union Gospel Mission (UGM) to create a welcoming, safe, and healing home for women and children focused on recovering from past traumas and breaking free of destructive choices through UGM’s LifeChange program.
